UK industry output saw its largest decline since January 2013 in November, according to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics.

Industrial output fell 0.7% in November from October, with the ONS citing this winter’s warm weather as a large factor for the decline. Weak demand for gas heating led to a 2.1 percent drop in gas and electricity generation.

Manufacturing also saw a decline in November, falling 2.1 percent on the year and shrinking by 0.4% from October.
