UK employment fell in the three months to September to 32 million people, down by 14,000 from the previous quarter.

But while the number of people in work fell, the number of jobless fell by 59,000 in the same period, Office for National Statistics (ONS) data shows.

The unemployment rate remained steady at 4.3%, and down from 4.8% a year earlier.

But wage growth still lags behind inflation, with wages in the period up 2.2% on a year earlier.
