Unemployment in Wales falls by 6,000 to 6.8%

Unemployment has fallen again in Wales but there are concerns that the jobs being taken up are low paid and offer too few hours.

Figures from the Office of National Statistics show the unemployment rate fell by 6,000 to 102,000 in the last quarter to 6.8%.

The Welsh government has welcomed the news but unions say the labour market here is far from healthy.

BBC Wales' business correspondent Brian Meechan looks at unemployment in Wrexham.
