The UK economy has started to improve in the first three months of this year according to the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).
BCC's latest quarterly economic survey has stated that exports as well as domestic orders are higher than the previous quarter.

However, on Monday data showed that the manufacturing sector had grown at its fastest rate for 10 months, suggesting that the economy could return to growth after contracting by 0.3% in the last quarter of 2011.
