Despite billions spent on the job retention ‘furlough’ scheme, UK employment dropped by the largest amount in over a decade between April and June, ONS figures show.

Due to the coronavirus lockdown, the number of people recorded as ‘in work’ fell by 220,000 on the quarter, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Before the lockdown, the UK had recorded the highest number of people in work and looked forward to a strong recovery following ten years of post-2008 recession austerity.

The numbers of unemployment benefits claimants rose sharply from just over 1 million to 2.7 million in the first six months of this year.

More bad news for UK jobs is on the way with one in three UK employers planning further redundancies, which are up fivefold on last year.
