Stoke-on-Trent among UK's job creation hotspots
Businesses in Stoke-on-Trent are creating jobs at a faster rate than almost anywhere else in the UK.
The findings are contained in a new study, which says only Glasgow, Milton Keynes and Liverpool had higher job creation rates in the period between July 1 and September 30 this year. An extra 3,500 jobs came to the Potteries in just 12 months.

Manufacturing production, such as glassware, ceramics and porcelain are some of the areas seeing year-on-year growth.
