The latest figures for the third quarter show that the UK economy grew by 1% between July and September this year. This follows last month's figures from the Office for National Statistics' which showed surprisingly strong growth, bringing to an end a nine-month long recession.

It's believed one of the reasons behind the strong growth was consumer spending, which grew by 0.6% - the strongest rate for more than two years. The services sector also grew by 1.3%, but there was a contraction in the construction sector.

The ONS will revise its growth figures for the third quarter again next month, when it will have a more comprehensive set of data for the UK's economic performance. However, despite the confirmation of strong growth, analysts warned that it may be short lived.
