The Fitch credit ratings agency has downgraded the UK to AA+ owing to a weakened economic outlook.

 

The move, after Moody's downgrade in February, came as Chancellor George Osborne defended the government's austerity plan.

 

Fitch said its downgrade primarily reflected a weaker economic and fiscal outlook.
