Unemployment: Stephen Crabb welcomes youth jobless fall

The unemployment rate in Wales has fallen again from 6.7% to 6.5%.

A total of 94,000 people were unemployed in Wales between June and August this year, down by 3,000 compared to the previous three months.

However, there were still 32,000 fewer people in work in Wales compared to the same period in 2013.

First Minister Carwyn Jones said the drop showed the government's polices were "making a difference, creating and safeguarding jobs".

Welsh Secretary Stephen Crabb said he was particularly encouraged that youth unemployment was falling.
