The Bank of England announced that it would pump another 50 billion into the economy to ensure continued recovery.

The move defied market expectations and put a dampener on hopes for a swift economic upturn.

The decision by the Bank to expand its programme of quantitative easing from 125 billion to 175 billion breaks the ceiling set by the Chancellor at 150 billion. It also confirmed that interest rates would remain at 0.5 per cent for a fifth consecutive month.

Ross Walker, UK economist at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: This is a huge surprise. All the rhetoric seemed to point to not doing very much more.
