    Bicycle helmets have been added to the basket of goods used to measure the UK's inflation rate. Goods included are meant to reflect contemporary habits and technology so as to better indicate the changing cost of living.

    The Office for National Statistics (ONS) measures the price movements of 700 goods across 20,000 UK outlets to calculate inflation.

    There have been 16 additions to the basket for 2017. Cycle helmets are back after a 12-year absence and the list will also now include gin, jigsaws and non-dairy milks.
