Unemployment rises slightly in July

Figures show the lowest July figure since 2004

The number of unemployed people on the Island is the lowest July figure since 2004.

That's despite a rise in unemployment on the previous month.

According to the latest figures from the Cabinet Office show 133 people were signed on in July - 13 more than in June.

It means the Island's current unemployment rate stands at one per cent.

Majority of those on the register are men, with 268 unemployed compared to 152 women.
