Inflation slid to its lowest level in almost five years during August, official figures showed today. The Consumer Prices Index (CPI) fell from 1.8% to 1.6% over the month, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). It was last lower in November 2004. Unchanged household ENERGY bills this year compared with big hikes 12 months earlier dragged down the rate of inflation, along with falling food prices, the ONS said. See PA story ECONOMY Inflation.

DARTS legend Eric Bristow stopped by at a bookmakers to celebrate its opening.

The former professional darts star was special guest at the opening of the new Betfred, in Waterlooville town centre.

The bookmakers had originally sparked concern from residents and councillors after it put in plans to open a new shop in The Boulevard, London Road.

The council received 102 letter of objections, but the application was approved and the store opened last Friday.

Fans, customers and staff were challenged by Eric to a darts battle, compered by Paul Booth, his MC.

And free bets were given away to all challengers – win or lose.

Eric also visited the Betfred bookmakers in London Road, North End, Portsmouth the day before.
