Britain’s factories make strong comeback

With the shock of the Brexit vote wearing off, output and new orders at UK factories posted solid gains in August, according to the Markit/Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply UK Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index. The benchmark surged from July’s 48.3 to 53.3, the highest reading in 10 months and the biggest monthly gain in the nearly 25 years of the survey.
