Job surge in rural areas

Some rural parts of the UK have seen a surge in job adverts posted, despite the coronavirus pandemic, one study suggests.
Job postings in Breckland and South Norfolk jumped 8.7% between early and mid-May.
Parts of Scotland and north-eastern England also saw an increase, according to the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC).
Its chief executive described the new data as "encouraging".
"Hopefully other regions will start to follow in the coming weeks," said REC boss Neil Carberry.
The largest weekly falls in vacancies were reported to be in the South West and North West.
