US employment was more resilient than expected in October despite the impact of strike action at General Motors.

Companies added 128,000 new jobs, ahead of a forecast 85,000 rise, during a month when thousands of workers walked out at the carmaker.

The unemployment rate edged up slightly to 3.6% from 3.5% in September, which had been the lowest rate since 1969.
