U.K. Unemployment Hits 10-Year High

U.K. unemployment rose in January to the highest level in almost a decade, threatening to erode support for Prime Minister Gordon Brown as the recession deepens.

The number of people receiving jobless benefits climbed 73,800 to 1.23 million, the most since July 1999 and the 12th increase in succession, the Office for National Statistics said today in London.
