Growth of 1% this quarter
This is the fastest period of growth for years. Delighted that Ed Balls has to change his hand signal and admit the economy he ruined is coming back to life. However, as I explained on the BBC locally this morning, the key will be a long term sustainable recovery, away from the land of boom and bust. In short we have crested the first big hill but have a long sustained journey to go.
