London was one of only three places in the country to see a rise in unemployment in the last three months.
The Office for National Statistics revealed that an extra five thousand people are jobless in the capital since the Olympics.
And as Paul Brand reports, for many Londoners out of work, the reality is a very bleak Christmas.
London is the only part of the country to experience a drop in long-term youth unemployment over the last two years, according to a report by the Trades Union Congress.
The rest of England has seen an increase of almost 25 percent since the coalition government came to power in 2010.
Iain Duncan Smith MP, the Work and Pensions Minister, says that the boost in employment reported today is not down to the Olympics, but that the Games will have an impact in the future.
The number of people in work in London has increased by 100,000, suggesting a big jobs boost from the Olympics.
Unemployment within the UK is now at its lowest level for a year, standing at 2.56 million.
In the three months to June, the number of people in work nationwide increased by 201,000, with half that rise coming in London.
Employment Minister Chris Grayling reacted to the news that unemployment figures in London had fallen by 20,000.
The Office for National Statistics said unemployment in London fell by 20,000 between March and May. The total figure of unemployed in the capital is 413,000.
