Unemployment across UK shows slight fall

Unemployment fell by 27,000 in the three months to February to 1.34 million, official Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures show.

The number of people in work was also virtually unchanged at a record high of 32.7 million, with a jump of 179,000.

The figure has increased by 457,000 over the past year, all among full-time employees and the self-employed.

Average weekly earnings, excluding bonuses, had an estimated rise of 3.4%, before adjusting for inflation.

When adjusted for inflation, pay, including bonuses, increased by 1.5% on the year, the highest figure since the summer of 2016.

The UK’s unemployment rate of 3.9% is now lower than at any time since the end of 1975.
