UK GDP for the three months ended June contracted 0.2% compared to the previous quarter, the Office for National Statistics said Friday. Experts had expected growth to be flat. UK economy shrinks for first time since 2012.

A recession is when the GDP growth rate is negative for two consecutive quarters or more.

Germany also shrank by 0.1% in the 2nd quarter.
