UK unemployment falls by 125,000 to 2.34 million

The number of people out of work in the UK fell by 125,000 to 2.34 million in the three months to December, according to the latest estimates.

The unemployment rate now stands at 7.2%, but the Office for National Statistics said the improvement in the labour market could be slowing.

Meanwhile, more women are in work than at any time since records began, at just over 14 million.
