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.

A FIRE alarm company will be sponsoring Great Fire 350, the official commemoration of the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London.

A series of free events will take place across the City, Southbank and Bankside until Sunday. The event has been sponsored by Apollo Fire Detectors, in Brookside Road, Havant.

It will illustrate the resilience and resourcefulness of the people of London during the fire. The lack of fire safety regulation and official fire brigade contributed to the destruction of the 17th century London buildings, which were packed tightly together and constructed from timber.

Great Fire 350 is the official commemoration of the 350th anniversary of the tragedy and is supported by the Fire Safety Circle of companies, including Apollo.

This is an umbrella season of lectures, tours, artwork installations and experiences across the location of the fire that tells the story of the disaster. The events will celebrate the advances in fire detection, the success and resilience of the City and the influence on London as a worldwide capital.
