Nationwide, the number of people in work has reached a record high after further falls in unemployment, fuelled by more self-employment.

Meanwhile, average earnings increased by 1.7% in the year to March, slightly ahead of the latest CPI inflation rate of 1.6% - the first time this has happened for four years.
The number of economically-inactive people fell by 85,000 in the latest quarter to 8.85 million, while long-term and youth unemployment also fell.
The number of people out of work for over a year was down by 32,000 to 813,000, with unemployment among 16 to 24-year-olds falling by 48,000 to 868,000, the lowest figure for five years.

As the recovery takes hold, more people are able to get a job or set up their own business and become the employers of tomorrow. Each and every person who has made a new start or hired someone new is helping to make Britain a more prosperous and confident place to be. We will continue to support those in and out of work who want to get on and fulfil their ambitions for a more secure future.
Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed the news on Twitter:
There's more to do, but it's welcome unemployment is down again. More jobs means more financial security for people #LongTermEconomicPlan.
