The number of people looking for work in Spain rose by 2.7% in October, marking the third month in a row that unemployment levels have risen.

A total of 4.8m people are now out of work in Spain, according to the Labour Ministry, which compiles the monthly figures.

Spain's quarterly unemployment rate, considered a more reliable gauge of employment levels, was 25% at the end of September.

The country remains in recession.
