Unemployment figures rise 'related to eurozone crisis'

Unemployment among 16-24-year-olds reached a record high of more than one million in the three months up to September.

The total number of jobless people in the UK also rose, by 129,000 to 2.62 million.

Employment minister Chris Grayling said the rise in numbers is a result of "the real impact of the crisis in the eurozone".
