Building sector is growing at fastest pace in months

Britain's builders enjoyed a post-election bounce last month as the construction sector grew at its fastest pace since February, according to new figures.

The closely-watched Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) survey showed a far better-than-expected reading of 58.1 for the sector in June, up from 55.9 in May. Housebuilding remained the fastest growing area in the sector.
