British consumer sentiment rose last month to its highest level since April 2016, bolstered by expectations of greater job security and rising house prices, polling company YouGov said on Monday. The YouGov/Cebr figures add to signs of a rapid rebound in Britain's economy in the second quarter when lockdown restrictions in place since the start of the year eased for many retailers, pubs and restaurants. "Undeterred by the unusually wet weather last month, UK consumers have clearly made the most of their newfound freedoms and spent freely in shops and the hospitality sector," said Kay Neufeld, head of forecasting at economic consultants Cebr.
The British public's expectations for inflation held steady in October after a big jump in September when the COVID-19 pandemic flared up again, a survey showed on Tuesday. "Household inflation expectations remain anchored, but further increases could suggest challenges," economists from Citi said.
A measure of consumer confidence among people in Britain fell for the first time in six months in October as worries mounted about new COVID-19 restrictions , polling firm YouGov and the Centre for Economics and Business Research said. Concerns about household finances and property values pushed down the index to 101.3, down 1.1 points from September. "The first fall in the Consumer Confidence Index in six months may prove to be a turning point in consumer sentiment as the reality of a second wave sets in," Kay Neufeld, head of macroeconomics at Cebr said.
