British manufacturers started 2014 on a solid footing in January but bad weather caused the broader measure of growth in industrial output to slow sharply, official data showed on Tuesday. Manufacturing output grew by 0.4 percent in January from December - despite a big fall in output in the pharmaceutical industry - and was 3.3 percent higher than in the same month last year, the Office for National Statistics said. Overall industrial output, which includes power generation and Britain's North Sea oil production as well as manufacturing, climbed 0.1 percent on the month, a sharp slowdown from growth of 0.5 percent in December. Compared with a year ago, industrial output was up 2.9 percent, the ONS said.
