Poverty worst in London

London has the severest poverty in Britain, a new study shows. The poorest fifth of London households own just 0.1 per cent of the capital’s wealth, according to the Trust for London, which notes 58 per cent of those are in working families.

“Over 2 million Londoners are struggling to make ends meet. That's more than the entire populations of Manchester, Liverpool, Bristol and Newcastle combined,” said the Trust’s policy director.
