Child poverty in the UK

The Campaign group End Child Poverty has published its latest Child poverty map of the UK 2016.  The map provides statistics on the level of child poverty in each constituency, local authority and ward in the UK.  It highlights there  are now more than three and a half million children living in poverty in the UK, and that whilst child poverty exists in every part of the country, as many as 47% of children are living in poverty in some areas  compared to one in ten in others.
