12th July 2011
Clothing prices fell 1.9% compared with the previous month, led by falling prices for women's outerwear and footwear, as summer sales began early.
The price data echoes poor retail sales revealed earlier on Tuesday by the British Retail Consortium.
Food costs continued to rise up 0.9% in the month, with notable increases in the cost of bread, cereals, meat, milk, cheese and eggs.
Despite the fall in June's inflation rate, the figures are above the Bank of England's 2% target.
