Guardian live-blog: Eurozone recession continues as GDP falls by 0.2% – Finland, Netherlands, Germany, Austria weak.

Over here. Key points:

• French economy shrinks 0.2% in first three months of 2013
• Italy in longest recession on record
• Germany barely grows
• Czech Republic and Netherlands also in recession
