Eurozone economic growth halved in the second quarter, but the 19-nation single currency area moved away from deflation.

France, the eurozone's second-largest economy, saw no growth after expanding by 0.7% in the first quarter.

Eurozone inflation rose to 0.2% in July from 0.1% in June as a result of higher food, alcohol and tobacco prices.

Data also revealed that the eurozone jobless rate remained at 10.1% in June.

The economic growth figures are the first to be published since Britain voted to leave the EU.
