Growth in the eurozone economy slowed again in the third quarter of 2015, according to official figures.

The 19-country bloc economy grew by 0.3% during the quarter, down from 0.4% in the second quarter and 0.5% in the first quarter.

Germany - the largest economy in the eurozone - saw its economy follow the eurozone with growth slowing from 0.4% to 0.3%. The country's official statistics agency said the economy was boosted by rising domestic consumption by international trade "had a downward effect on growth because the increase in imports was markedly larger than that of exports".

France also reported growth of 0.3%, but that was up from zero growth in the second quarter. Like Germany, the French statistics organisation said a rise in imports impacted on growth.

Elsewhere, the Spanish economy grew by 0.8%, and the Greek economy contracted by 0.5%.
