Child Poverty Heat Map Reveals 'Shocking' Picture Of Modern Britain
Big cities such as London, Birmingham and Manchester hardest-hit.

By Rachel Wearmouth

The biggest rises in UK child poverty over the last two years were in deprived areas, new figures described as “nothing short of a disgrace” reveal.

This interactive heat map, published on Wednesday by End Child Poverty, lays bare how hundreds of thousands of families often do not have enough money to clothe and feed their children.

Child poverty - covering those in a family living on less than 60% of median household income - is highest in large cities, particularly London, Birmingham and Manchester.

Shockingly, in four constituencies over 50% of all children are living in poverty - in London’s Bethnal Green and Bow, Birmingham Ladywood, Poplar and Limehouse, also London, and Birmingham Hodge Hill.

By contrast, Prime Minister Theresa May’s Maidenhead constituency is also among those with the lowest level of child poverty in the country at just 13.6%.

And the Typical Blatant Lie from the Worst of the Tory Scum,

Iain Duncan Smith, the work and pensions secretary, said the proportion of people with low incomes was at its lowest since the mid-1980s.
