Inflation shows alcohol price increase of 7.3 per cent

Inflation on the Island fell for the sixth month in a row in April, according to the latest government figures.

Data released by the Cabinet Office shows the consumer price index stood at 2.2 per cent at the end of the month, down from 3.2 per cent the month before.

The figures show it's bad news for boozers - with alcohol and tobacco products costing 7.3 per cent more than last year.

Internet subscriptions saw the largest rise over the past 12 months of 12.4 per cent, while air travel was the biggest faller, down 11.3 per cent.
