Unemployment rises in North East Lincolnshire
Employment Minister Mark Hoban says there is "clearly a challenge" in Grimsby following a recent spate of job losses.
His remarks came as quarterly labour market figures showed a slight increase in unemployment in North East Lincolnshire.
The total claimant count for jobseekers' allowance in December 2012 was 6,295, an increase on November's figure of 6,120.
But in Yorkshire and the Humber as a whole, employment was up by around 34,000.
