Ed­in­burgh folk ‘least happy’

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

IT boasts some of the world’s most fa­mous tourist at­trac­tions and hosts the largest arts fes­ti­val, but for res­i­dents, Ed­in­burgh is the most mis­er­able place to live in the UK, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey.

Just 16 per cent of res­i­dents in the cap­i­tal de­scribe their lives as “happy”, favour­ing the word “anx­ious” in­stead, ac­cord­ing to the poll of 3,000 Bri­tons.

Liver­pool, Southamp­ton and Glas­gow could also be found near the bot­tom of the ta­ble for hap­pi­ness lev­els.

At the other end of the scale, Brighton took the ti­tle of Bri­tain’s hap­pi­ness cap­i­tal, with more than one-third of the city’s pop­u­la­tion de­scrib­ing their lives as “happy”.

The coastal city beat com­pe­ti­tion from Le­ices­ter and Portsmouth to take the top spot.
