UK economy has suffered its biggest slump on record between April and June as coronavirus lockdown measures pushed the country officially into recession.

The economy shrank 20.4% compared with the first three months of the year.

This plunged the UK into its first technical recession – defined as two straight quarters of economic decline – since 2009.

Officials said the economy bounced back in June as government restrictions on movement started to ease. -BBC News
