The death map of the UK

Some Monday morbidity to kick-start the week. The fact of the matter is we are all going to die sometime, just some of us sooner??Official figures reveal how nearly FIVE times as many people die in certain areas than others?

It comes after shock figures in September revealed life expectancy is stalling in England and falling across many parts of the UK.

The UK was found to be lagging near the bottom of the league table of Western countries for life expectancy – behind Switzerland, Italy and New Zealand.

The analysis, by the Office for National Statistics, showed that after many years of Britons being able to make the most of living longer, the progress had stalled.

Across the UK as a whole, life expectancy did not improve at all between 2015 and 2017 – standing at 79.2 years for men and 82.9 years for women.
