Interest rates cut to 1%

The Bank of England has reduced interest rates to 1% from 1.5% in an attempt to kickstart the economy.

This marks the fifth interest rate cut since October, as the Bank tries to get the UK's financial industry lending again.

The decision comes after official data showed the UK had entered a recession in December, after two quarters of shrinking economic growth.
