Output by British industry was flat in July on a monthly basis, official data showed on Friday.
Output was unchanged in July from the figure for June, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said in a statement.
But on a 12-month comparison, industrial output -- which includes mining and quarrying, electricity, gas and water supply -- shrank by 1.6 percent in July.
The ONS added that manufacturing output, which excludes the above sectors, grew 0.2 percent in July from June.
The measure fell 0.7 percent in July when compared with the same month last year.
