London has fallen down a league table of the best places in the world to live, following last year's riots.

The unrest in August 2011 has been blamed for the capital slipping two places down a league table of living conditions compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit. It now stands at number 55 in the world.

The study ranks cities on issues such as political and social stability, crime, education and access to health care.

Dhaka in Bangladesh was named the least "liveable" location, while Melbourne overtook Vancouver as the most "liveable" city.
