Encouraging unemployment figures released

The overall rate of unemployment fell by ten per cent between October 2014 and October 2015.

Figures released also show the number of jobless people under 25 fell by almost a third - from 333 to 237 in the same period.

Long Term Unemployment figures - for those who have been claiming jobseekers allowance for more than a year - are also encouraging for the Government.

Peaking at 255 in February 2014, that number reduced by 46 per cent to 138.
