U.K. unemployment unexpectedly edges up


U.K. unemployment for the three months to December unexpectedly rose to 7.2% from 7.1% previously and topped estimates that were 7.1% also. (PR)

Meanwhile, the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee voted unanimously - as expected - to keep interest rates at 0.5% and against more quantitative easing at a meeting earlier this month, the minutes of the meeting show.

The pound slides vs the dollar and is -0.1% at $1.6677; the FTSE is +0.1%.
