British annual inflation fell in July from a 14-month peak reached in June, official data showed on Tuesday.
Consumer Prices Index (CPI) inflation dropped to 2.8 percent last month from 2.9 percent in June, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said in a statement.
"The largest contributions to the fall in the rate came from air fares, plus price movements in the recreation and culture, and clothing and footwear sectors. A rise in petrol and diesel prices partially offset the fall," the ONS said.
