THE number of Jobseeker's Allowance claimants on the Isle of Wight has reached its lowest level in almost six years.
According to Office of National Statistic (ONS) figures released today (Wednesday), the number of people claiming the unemployment benefit dropped from 2,030 to 1,755 between May and June.
That was the lowest level since September 2008 and represented 2.1 per cent of the Island's 16 to 64 year olds.
The national average was 2.4 per cent and in the South East the figure was 1.4 per cent.
