Men born in the city will on average die almost seven years earlier than those born in the wealthiest parts of London. New born baby boys in Hull can expect to live to 76.

Doctors blame a combination of poverty, unhealthy lifestyles, and high smoking and drinking levels. Baby girls born in the city in the last couple of years can expect to live to 80 - in line with the national average.
