The number of people out work in France rose by just 300 in December.

That marks a pause after 19 straight months of bigger increases, but the total is still stuck close to its highest in almost 15 years.

The latest Labour ministry data showed that the number of registered job seekers in mainland France stood at just over three point one million.
