Eurozone unemployment rises again

Once again there has been a rise in Europe's jobless.

In June the number of people without work across the Euro currency zone rose a further 123,000, taking the total up to 17.8 million.

It is the 14th successive monthly rise.

Once again there is a marked divergence between jobless rates in northern Europe, and those in the financially struggling southern countries.
