Producer price inflation hit 3.5% in December, its highest for 11 months, largely on the back of higher fuel prices. "Core" output price inflation was a more modest 2.6%. Input price inflation also rose, from 4% to 6.9%. More here.

The FT house price index, produced by Acadametrics, had its last outing under its current sponsors. It record a 0.8% December price rise, the eighth in a row, for an increase of 4.2% on a year earlier.
