Shock drop in UK factory orders fuels doubts regarding economic recovery

Britain probably came out of recession between July and September. Third-quarter gross domestic product figures due on Thursday are expected to show solid growth, boosted by a one-off rebound after an extra public holiday hit output in June.

But Bank of England Governor Mervyn King warned on Tuesday that a slowdown in emerging markets posed a new threat to the British economy, adding that the central bank was ready for more stimulus should positive signs of recovery fade.
