Hundreds of Londoners have died waiting for an organ transplant in the last five years, according to new figures.

NHS Blood and Transplant is now calling on more people to sign up to the donor register, and to discuss the issue within their families.

A 'Happy Forecast' has found Fulham and Parson's Green to have the happiest communities in the capital.

A study of all London's 119 postcodes found these areas have the best social wellbeing, while Tooting, Whitechapel and Walworth had the worst.

'Most Happy' areas include:

  • SW6 - Fulham, Parson's Green
  • SE19 - Upper Norwood, Crystal Palace, Norwood New Town
  • SE21 - Dulwich Village, West Dulwich
  • SW13 - Barnes, Castelnau
  • SE22 - East Dulwich

'Least Happy' areas include:

  • SW17 - Tooting
  • E1 - Aldgate, Whitechapel, Mile End
