  6. Unemployment rates rise shows young are hit

    We already know young people are less likely to lose their life to coronavirus, but figures show they have more chance of losing their job.

    Young people were particularly hard hit, with those aged 16 to 24 suffering the biggest drop in employment compared with other age groups.

    The UK unemployment rate has risen to its highest level for two years, official figures show.

    The unemployment rate grew to 4.1% in the three months to July, compared with 3.9% previously.

    In the North East the rate is 5.2% which is unchanged over the last quarter.
