Growth forecasts revised down, Chancellor reveals

Growth forecasts have been downgraded, the Chancellor said.

It was 2.4% for 2016, but has now been revised down to 2% by the OBR, George Osborne said.

It is predicted to be 2.2% in 2017 rather than 2.4% and 2.1% in each of the three years after that.

Mr Osborne said Britain was expected to "grow faster than any other advanced economy in the world".
