A new report has highlighted a stark postcode lottery across the Anglia region in your chances of getting on in life.

The State of the Nation report on social mobility suggests that where you live has a huge impact on your future.

Rural, coastal and former industrial areas are said to offer some of the most limited opportunities - with lower pay and fewer top jobs.

Corby in Northamptonshire comes fourth worst in the country with Wellingborough's at seventh and Waveney in Suffolk at 11th from bottom.

East Hertfordshire and neighbouring Uttlesford in Essex are among the best areas - near the top of the table at 14th and 20th respectively.
