Views from the flipside

According to figures from the Office for National Statistics, Economic Growth fell to 0.3% in the first quarter of 2015, down from 0.6% in 2014. With the economy being an important policy for many parties this election, the news could have an effect on how voters react next week, which sees polling stations open in only nine days time.

The annual rate of growth slowed to just 2.4% compared to the 2.7% measured in the fourth quarter of 2014.

The stand-out figure was construction which saw a rapid decrease by 1.6% from the last quarters of 2014.
