Athens is struggling to meet its payment obligations.

Manufacturing production in the U.K. rose 0.4% in March, exceeding expectations for a 0.3% gain, after a 0.5% increase in February. February's figure was revised up from a 0.4% rise.

Manufacturing output was driven by oil and gas extraction, which jumped 4.9% in March, the biggest rise since February 2014.

Industrial production in the U.K. climbed 0.5% in March, beating forecasts of a flat reading, after a 0.1% rise in February.

The National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) released its estimate of gross domestic product (GDP) for the U.K. on Tuesday. The GDP estimate rose by 0.4% in three months to April, after a 0.3% growth in three months to March.
