Wages show fastest rise in almost a decade

Wages rose at the fastest pace in nearly a decade in the three months to September, Office for National Statistics (ONS) figures show.
Compared with a year earlier, wages excluding bonuses, rose by 3.2% - the biggest rise since the end of 2008 and up slightly on the previous quarter.
However, the ONS warned that real wage growth was below the 2015 level.
The unemployment total went up for the first time this year, rising by 21,000 in the same period to 1.38 million.
