Statistics released by the Office of National Statistics (ONS) have highlighted a reduction in the number of people travelling to and from the UK in the first 9 months of 2016.

Taken from a random selection of travellers entering and leaving the UK by sea, air and via the Channel Tunnel, figures provided to the ONS from the International Passenger Survey show an overall drop in both passenger numbers and the amount spent.

In September, 2.48 million visits to the UK were made compared with nearly 2.56 million in September 2009, the Office for National Statistics said.

A new austerity drive is sweeping across Europe, as governments struggle to trim huge budget deficits and the 16-nation eurozone races to reassure sceptical markets.

So far the biggest protests have been seen in Greece, but major strikes are making headlines elsewhere too.

This is the latest news as to the measures that the new government is taking.

The new UK coalition government has announced £6.2bn (7.2bn euros) of savings in 2016-2017, making it clear that this is just the first step in an austerity drive aimed at cutting the huge deficit of £156bn, which is above 11% of GDP.
