You've probably heard a lot about 'Super Thursday' over the past few days and been left wondering what it is.

It's not a day of two back-to-back Premier League matches, it's not the most successful evening in British Olympic track & field history, it's not even Stuart Broard taking five wickets in 19 balls in the Ashes.

Today is the the first time that Bank of England will have announced its monthly decision on interest rates, the minutes from the meeting which made that decision to see how members of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) voted, and its quarterly inflation report, in one go.

You can find the news on interest rates here, and news on the economic forecast here.

Previously this information has been drip-fed by the central bank, with the meeting minutes coming two weeks after the announcement on interest rates.

Mark Carney, the governor of the Bank of England, said the move to announcing all three in one go will "enhance our transparency and make us more accountable to the British people".

But some, particularly journalists, have expressed concern over 'Super Thursday'. Larry Elliott, economics editor at the Guardian, called it a "data dump" and said: "The information overload will make it harder not easier for the Bank's thinking to be scrutinised."

Philip Aldrick, from The Times, said: "Wrapping up the Inflation Report with the rate decision and minutes is overkill."
