Boris Johnson has warned the UK has a "long, long way to go" before the economy improves, after official figures showed the largest drop in employment in over a decade.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

"Clearly there are going to be bumpy months ahead and a long, long way to go," the Prime Minister said.

However, he said parts of the economy were "showing great resilience".

Between April and June, the number of people in work fell by 220,000, the Office for National Statistics said.

The drop in the number of people employed was the largest quarterly decrease since May to July 2009, the depths of the financial crisis.
