UK chancellor Rishi Sunak has caved into pressure to extend the furlough scheme once more, promising more generous support until next March for workers in struggling firms.

The finance minister made the latest in a string of recent announcements expanding job support in parliament on Thursday. He confirmed the government’s furlough scheme will continue beyond the current December cut-off across the UK, offering subsidies worth 80% of previous wages for workers on leave.
