Live long and prosper?

Hull may be Britain's current capital of culture but you are not likely to have a long life by living there, according to new research. swapping Kingston-upon-Hull for Kingston-upon-Thames could give you a hugely improved chance of living longer.

Rich Britons are eight times more likely than poor people to live to the ripe old age of 100, actuarial experts say. UK average life expectancy is now 81, but there are huge disparities with the wealthiest households expected to live 20 years longer than those in the most deprived areas.
