The OBR said: "Developments in Ukraine are not expected to have a large impact on the UK in our central forecast.

"There could also be a broader risk through trade linkages and financial exposure to Ukraine, Russia and other affected countries."

Chancellor George Osborne has been accused of doing "nothing" to address funding shortfalls in the NHS in his latest Budget.
Dr Mark Porter, chair of council at the British Medical Association, said: "Despite claiming the economy is on the up, today's Budget does nothing to address the crippling funding shortfall in the NHS.
"While the Government claims the NHS budget is protected, in reality it's suffered £20 billion of cuts, billions of which have come from a sustained attack on staff pay.
"Without the investment needed to meet rising patient demand and put the NHS on a sustainable financial footing the Government need to face up to the reality that patient care, and indeed the very future of the NHS, will be at risk."
A mother of three and chief executive of MyFamilyClub, a money saving website, told ITV News the government's childcare support was "welcome" but it was "ridiculous" it extended to those earning up to £300,000 a year.
Gemma Johnson said: "British childcare costs are amongst the highest in the world - so this tax rebate is welcome, as it will help make working parents better off at a time when family budgets are stretched to the absolute limit.
"But it's ridiculous that this tax rebate extends to families earning up to £300,000 a year, and yet doesn't help the millions of families that have a stay-at-home mum or dad by one single penny."
