img The number of people out of work in the UK has continued to decline.

Unemployment fell by 49,000 to 2.51 million in the three months to September, taking the jobless rate down to 7.8% from 7.9%.

The ONS said almost all the 49,000 fall was due to a decline in youth unemployment. But the number of 16-24-year olds unemployed is 963,000.

The unemployment level is now 110,000 lower than for the same period last year.
