Britain's economy expanded by 0.8 percent in the third quarter compared with the previous three months, official data showed on Wednesday.

Gross domestic product growth (GDP) climbed by 2.8 percent between July and September compared with the third quarter in 2009, the Office for National Statistics said in a statement.

All the data was unchanged from the ONS' initial estimates published last month.

"Gross Domestic Product increased by 0.8 percent in the third quarter of 2010, unrevised from the previous estimate," the ONS said.
