Significant jobs gap between North and South of UK

A study by the Centre for Cities said for every 12 jobs created since 2004 in the South, only one was created in cities elsewhere.

Business reporter Ben Thompson went to Niftylift in Milton Keynes: the city has come top for job creation in a survey by Centre for Cities. He spoke to Andrew Carter, the groups research director and Pam Gosal from Invest in Milton Keynes. They said Niftylift has benefited from a good supply of skilled workers and it's proximity to London.

Gloucester came bottom of the list whilst Hull and Rochdale also struggled to attract support.
