Bank of England raises rates by 50 bps to 5%, highest since 2008

BoE has increased interest rates higher than the predicted 0.25% increase, following the increase in British inflation and wages since its last meeting in May. The move, which is its biggest rate increase since February and takes the rate to its highest since 2008, was decided by a 7-2 vote by the Monetary Policy Committee
