The Business Secretary Alok Sharma says that the unemployment figures are very worrying, after the ONS reported that the number of people working in the UK has fallen by 750,000 in the three months to June.

He added that the government is providing support to people through the furlough scheme, universal credit and by doubling the number of work coaches.

The crippling effect of coronavirus within communities [Video]

The crippling effect of coronavirus within communities

Data obtained by ITV News has revealed the crippling impact coronavirus is likely to have on towns and cities across the UK. With the full winding down of the furlough scheme by October, more than seven per cent of the UK's workforce could be unemployed by the end of the year, according to the Bank of England. But forecasts by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation predict the potential peak unemployment rate of up to 21% in some areas across the country by the end of 2020. According to the organisation, the likeliest hardest hit areas include coastal towns, traditional Labour voting areas of the West Midlands and Northern England and suburban London boroughs.
