The Bank of England has hiked interest rates by half a percentage point – the sixth rise since December and the biggest rise since 1995.
This means the bank rate now stands at 1.75% – its highest level since late 2008 at the beginning of the global financial crisis.
It will increase borrowing costs for millions of people, including those who have tracker rate mortgages.
