Britain has had "quite a long time" below the economic activity levels of 2007, the Archbishop of Canterbury said today.

The Rt Rev Justin Welby, who took over the role last month, returned to the theme of the country's financial woes in a radio interview following his warning on Monday that Britain is in an economic depression and could take a generation to recover.
