Unemployment up across Leicestershire
The number of people claiming job seekers' allowance in Leicestershire rose by 735 last month.
The combined claimant count for the city and county increased 3 per cent to 21,935 between December and January.
Max Boden, policy manager at Leicestershire Chamber of Commerce, blamed the impact of temporary seasonal shop, bar and hotel jobs coming to an end.
Mr Boden said the 150 redundancies in Leicestershire last month after the closure of Leicester camera chain Jessops would not be included in the figures. However, some of the 100 jobs lost when building firm Hallam Contracts, of Oadby, collapsed in November would be. Nationally, the number of people claiming the benefit in January fell by 12,500 to 1.54 million.
