UK retail recovery continues apace in August - ONS

LONDON, Sept 18 (Reuters) - British retail sales extended gains last month, as parts of the sector enjoyed a much faster rebound than most of the economy, official figures showed on Friday.

Retail sales volumes rose by 0.8% in August - slightly above the average 0.7% forecast in a Reuters poll - and compared with a year earlier they were up 2.8%, versus forecasts of 3.0% annual growth. (Reporting by David Milliken and Andy Bruce)
