SPAIN’S unemployment figures dropped by 100,000 in June, the third consecutive monthly fall, according to the Labour Ministry.

The cut in the number of people claiming unemployment benefits – down to 4.6 million – is the largest margin ever recorded for the month of June.

But Spain still has the highest unemployment rate in the eurozone, 24.4 per cent at the end of March, with 52 per cent of under 25s currently out of work.
