Business investment has now declined for three quarters in a row, figures show, its worst run since the economic downturn of 2008 to 2009.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said investment fell by 1.1% in the July to September period compared with the previous quarter.

However, separate ONS figures showed government borrowing fell in November.

Borrowing was £7.2bn last month, down £0.9bn from a year earlier and the lowest November figure for 14 years.
