UK unemployment has fallen by 5,000, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has said.

ONS data indicated 2.51 million people were out of work in the three months to April. The jobless rate was unchanged from three months earlier, at 7.8%.

Average earnings in the period were 1.3% up on a year earlier, thanks to a sharp rise in April bonus payments.
