LONDON: British annual inflation was unchanged in March, official data showed Wednesday, easing the pressure on the Bank of England to hike rates amid ongoing uncertainty over Brexit.

The Consumer Prices Index, which measures the cost of a basket of goods, stood at 1.9 percent last month, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said in a statement, reports AFP.
