Data from the Office for National Statistics said the economy grew 0.4% between October and December in 2009.

This was faster than the previous estimate of 0.3% growth during the quarter.

The ONS said the upward revision was due to higher output from services, construction and agriculture.

For the year 2009 as a whole, GDP contracted by 4.9%, the ONS said. The previous estimate had been for a contraction of 5% over the year. GDP in 2008 grew 0.5%.
