Unemployment: ONS breaks down who got the new jobs

UK unemployment fell by 4,000 in the three months to June to 2.51 million, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The number of people claiming Jobseeker's Allowance in July fell more sharply, down by 29,000 to 1.4 million.

However most of the new jobs went to people in south east England and to older workers, as David Freeman from the ONS told BBC News.
