Liberal Democrats in Redcar and Cleveland Borough are delighted that unemployment in the Area is at its lowest since April 2009, following another fall in October.
Research also shows that unemployment in the area fell each month since February this year.
Lib Dem Council Group Leader Glyn Nightingale said:
“It is great to end the year with some good news like this. The fall in unemployment across the year means a happier Christmas for many local families. I am sure that the economic recovery will continue next year.
“There is still more to do, but it shows that the Government’s policies are working to provide growth, prosperity and jobs to our area.
“I am particularly pleased that Wilton-based Applied Graphene Materials are planning to increase their workforce from 10 to over 30 in the near future."
