Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- U.K. 10-year government bonds stayed higher as a report showed the economy grew faster than economists predicted in the third quarter.

Gains pushed the yield down by 10 basis points to 2.33 percent as of 9:35 a.m. London time. The two-year yield was little changed at 0.53 percent.

Gross domestic product rose 0.5 percent from the second quarter, when it increased 0.1 percent, the Office for National Statistics said today. Economists forecast a 0.3 percent increase, based on the median estimate of 36 economists in a Bloomberg News survey. Services output grew 0.7 percent, while industrial production increased 0.5 percent.
