Bank urged to remain calm as inflation rises

Higher fuel prices, more expensive computer games and increasing bank charges pushed inflation higher in October, according to the Office for National Statistics.

The rise in consumer price inflation (CPI) from 3.1 per cent in the year to September to 3.2 per cent in October, was slightly above expectations.

Inflation has remained above the official 2 per cent target for almost a year. The retail price index fell back marginally, from 4.6 to 4.5 per cent, largely due to depressed house prices, which were rising this time last year. These are not included in the CPI.
