Britain's economy grew by 0.5 percent in the third quarter, unrevised official data showed on Thursday.

Gross domestic product growth between July and September accelerated from output expansion of only 0.1 percent in the second quarter of 2011, the Office for National Statistics said in a statement.

GDP also grew by 0.5 percent in the third quarter compared with output in the equivalent period in 2010, the ONS said. Again the data was unrevised compared with initial official estimates published earlier this month.
