A new study says Cambridge is the fastest growing city economy in Britain, and it is likely to stay that way for a decade.

The Centre for Economics and Business Research said financial output there rose 2.9% in the last quarter.

The report said it ‘drew its strength’ from a highly skilled workforce, staffing highly productive industries including advanced engineering, design and pharmaceuticals.

It also revealed that 80% of the city's start-ups are still in business after three years.
