Life expectancy: Figures show Londoners living longer

Life expectancy for men and women is going up in London. Babies born from 2010 to 2012 can now expect to live to around 79 if they are boys and nearly 83 if they are girls. This is up on the last figures, calculated for babies born from 2009 to 2011, of 78.7 for boys and 82.6 for girls.
