The number of people claiming jobseeker’s allowance and universal credit in Rotherham – which includes Maltby, Dinnington and Mexborough – fell by 140 or three per cent to 4,060 in November compared to a year ago.

There were 945 people aged 18 to 24 who claimed jobseeker’s allowance and universal credit, a fall of 90 or nine per cent on this time last year.
