October has seen the highest number of confirmed redundancies this year, according to official statistics.

There were 1,240 redundancies recorded by the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (Nisra) – the second highest monthly total on record.

A further 1,530 have been proposed between the start of October and 6 November.

Proposed redundancies are when an employer tells the government it will be making 20 or more people redundant.
