It had also been expected to fall back into single digits last month before an unexpected increase to 10.4pc amid soaring food prices. Food and non-alcoholic drink prices were the key driver of inflation, rising by 19.2pc in the year to March.

Vegetable shortages had helped push food and non-alcohol prices up to 18.2pc in February, reflecting the sharpest increase in more than 45 years.
