Applicants 'with no realistic chance' of getting job

A recruitment firm believes around 10% of applications it sifts through are from unemployed people who have no interest in or chance of getting the job.

Dan Langford of Acorn Recruitment in Cardiff said there was a cohort of people who may apply for 15 or 20 jobs a day because they have to, as a process to still qualify for benefit.

He told BBC Wales' economics correspondent Sarah Dickins this did not help them, employers or the economy.
