Over half of children in inner London live in poverty says study
More than half of all children in inner London live in poverty, according to a study published this week. The report was carried out by the Greater London Authority and found that 54 per cent of children in inner London live in poverty, compared with an average of 29 per cent across England. In addition, the report raised concerns that London's child poverty rates do not appear to be falling in line with the national trend.
