UK economy grows

 The UK's economy grew by 0.3 per cent in May, helped by the royal wedding and warm weather.
 
The latest assessment by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) marks a change in the way the UK's GDP is calculated.
 
From now on, the ONS will release a monthly indicator and a rolling three-month figure. 
 
Previously, it only put out growth data every three months.
 
In the three months to May, the economy grew by 0.2 per cent compared with the previous three-month period.
