In Carmarthenshire the number of people out of work and claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance rose from 3,606 to 3,689 in the same period.

In Neath Port Talbot the claimant count rose from 3,256 in September to 3,316 in October.

The news comes as American mining giant Walter Energy is consulting with 270 workers at the Aberpergwm Colliery on plans to suspend activities at the Neath Valley mine.

In contrast house builder Persimmon and regeneration specialist St Modwen officially started work on the second phase of housing at the Coed Darcy Urban Village at Llandarcy on Monday this week which is expected to create 880 construction jobs.
