      UK unemployment has registered its first fall since last spring, according to official figures.
      Unemployment fell by 35,000 to 2.65 million over the December-to-February period, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
      The unemployment rate edged down from a 12-year high of 8.4% to 8.3%, the lowest level since the summer of last year.

      I find it very hard to believe to be honest, I know a few people who are at the moment trying to get a job and they are struggling alot to find one that pays enough to live on and also that gives them the hours they need.
