Hopes of a pick-up in the UK economy were boosted after figures showed growth in the dominant services sector jumped to a four-month high in November.

The Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) survey for the services sector showed a reading of 55.9 last month, the fastest rate of growth since July.

It's an improvement on October's figure of 54.9, leaving September's two-and-a-half year low of 53.3 far behind.
