Figures Reveal 14,000 Drop In Unemployment
Unemployment in Scotland has fallen by 14,000 in three months, official figures show.

While unemployment fell, figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that employment also dropped by 25,000 over the same spell.
The number of those in work in Scotland stands at 2,604,000.
The Scottish Government said there are now 40,000 more people in employment than at the pre-recession peak in 2008.
