People living in Peterborough and Luton have a greater risk of dying early than those Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex according to a national league table of premature death rates.
The Longer Lives website from Public Health England ranks local authorities using a traffic light system, ranging from red for the worst areas to green for the best.
Peterborough had 1,522 premature deaths between 2009 and 2011 out of a population of 184,457. That ranked it 87th out of 150 local authorities and made it worse than average or red on the map.
