A sur­vey by the prop­erty web­site Right­move ranks the bor­ough a lowly 122 out of 130, just ahead of neigh­bour­ing Har­row, Brent and Houn­slow.

West Lon­don bor­oughs un­sur­pris­ingly rate poorly for space, with Westminster, Kens­ing­ton & Chelsea, Houn­slow, and Ham­mer­smith & Ful­ham all in the bot­tom 10.

Hilling­don Coun­cil leader, Cllr Ray Pud­di­foot dis­missed the sur­vey as “so silly it’s not even wor­thy of com­ment”.
