LONDON - Britain revised up its estimates for business investment in the second and third quarters of this year after its statistics agency identified an error, it said on Friday.

The level of business investment in inflation adjusted terms was revised up by 1.6 and 1.0 percentage points for the second and third quarters, the Office for National Statistics said.

It cited an error involving transport investment data and said the revisions would not affect existing readings for economic growth.
