Spending 'flat' in US

US consumer spending was unchanged in May for the first time in almost a year, according to official figures.

The flat reading came after 10 straight months of gains, the Commerce Department said.

It followed a downwardly revised 0.3pc gain in April.

Economists had expected spending to gain only 0.1pc last month.
