Ben Broadbent revealed as new MPC member

Ben Broadbent, a senior economist at Goldman Sachs, is to replace Andrew Sentance on the Bank of England's monetary policy committee (MPC).

Mr Broadbent's first MPC meeting will be in June.

Mr Sentance has been voting in favour of an increase in interest rates at MPC meeting since June last year.

"Mr Broadbent is a widely respected economist who spent some of his early career at the Treasury," said BBC economics editor Stephanie Flanders.
