Jobs have been lost in the UK during lockdown at the fastest pace since the financial crisis a decade ago.

The Office for National Statistics said that employment fell by 220,000 between April and June. It is the steepest fall since May-July 2009, when 254,000 jobs were lost.

The scale of the downturn is likely to prove even greater, with 730,000 people leaving payrolls between March and July.
