Spain's zero economic growth

Lack of GDP growth in third quarter is major setback to efforts to cut massive unemployment.

    Spain's gradual economic recovery has come to a grinding halt with zero per cent GDP growth in the third quarter of 2010.

    The country's employment ministry says the lack of growth is a major setback to efforts to cut Spain's unemployment rate of 20 per cent - the highest in the European Union.

    Barbara Serra reports from Barcelona on the dramatically high number of people struggling to find work in the EU's fifth largest economy.
