    The purchasing managersí index (PMI) from IHS Markit slowed to 50.4 last month, down from 52.2 in October to the worst score since the aftermath of the referendum in 2016. Any score above 50 indicates growth, so this suggests stagnation across the biggest part of the economy.

    Economists had expected the PMI to rise to 52.7 in a modest acceleration of growth.
