UK's industrial production declined 0.4% in November

The decrease of 0.8% in three-monthly total manufacturing output is due to 10 of the 13 sub-sectors falling where the largest downward contribution came from a fall in transport equipment of 1.1%, which was due to a fall in motor vehicles of 2.4%.
