Britain is caught in a vicious unemployment spiral which threatens the fabric of society and could increase child poverty.

This is the shocking message from the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the United Nations' employment arm.

It warns that low wages and high unemployment are sucking money out of the economy, leading to further decreases in the amount of money circulating and more jobs lost.

The dire worldwide unemployment situation for young people is storing up grave risks for the future, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) has said.

Across the globe, young people are more than three times as likely as other adults to be unemployed.
