OUTRAGEOUS HEALTH INEQUALITIES

Males born in Bloomfield on Blackpool could expect 32 fewer years of healthy life than their counterparts born in Knightsbridge and Belgravia in Westminster.

The gap between Middlehaven females and the highest figure was even starker - 35.4 years fewer than those born in Blackheath and Wonersh of Waverley in Surrey .

The gap in healthy life expectancy between the best and worst areas is more than 30 years, figures show.
