Government borrowing fell last month according to official figures from the Office of National Statistics.
Public sector borrowing fell to £12.8 billion, compared with £13.5 billion from the same month last year. It is the lowest level of borrowing for a September since 2008.
The improvement was partly driven by a 4.5% fall in central government net investment to £2.4 billion.
