UK economy shrank in April after Brexit car plant shutdowns


The UK economy shrank by 0.4% in April, after a "dramatic fall" in car manufacturing, the Office for National Statistics said.

Rob Kent-Smith, the ONS head of GDP said: "GDP growth showed some weakening across the latest 3 months with the economy shrinking in the month of April mainly due to a dramatic fall in car production with uncertainty ahead of the UK’s original EU departure date leading to planned shutdowns.

"There was also widespread weakness across manufacturing in April, as the boost from the early completion of orders ahead of the UK’s original EU departure date has faded."
