The UK’s inflation rate fell to 0% in August, down from July’s rate of 0.1%, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has said.

Inflation, as measured by the Consumer Prices Index, fell due to a smaller rise in clothing prices from a year ago and cheaper fuel prices, the ONS said.

The Retail Prices Index (RPI) measure of inflation rose to 1.1% from 1.0% in July.
