U.K. May Manufacturing Output Rises Most Since March 2010

U.K. manufacturing rose at the fastest pace in more than a year in May as factories rebounded from the impact of an extra public holiday in April and the Japanese earthquake.

Factory output increased 1.8 percent from the previous month, the most since March 2010, the Office for National Statistics said today in London. It declined 1.6 percent in April. The median of 26 forecasts in a Bloomberg News survey was for a 1 percent gain.
