Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose to 10.1% for 12 months in April against 9.4% in June and remained at its highest level since February 1982.
According to the Office of National Statistics, the biggest driver of the latest increase was the growing costs of food, annual inflation for them now stands at 12.7% compared with 9.8% in June, mainly due to higher prices for basic products such as bread, milk, corn and eggs.
The inflation rate in April exceeds the forecast of 9.8%, which most economists expected, and is an even greater pressure on people's bowels.
It is expected that millions of public sector workers will vote for a strike on wages in the spring, which could be the biggest protest wave since the 1970s.
