Does the North-South divide really exist?

This is From the North - a new digital series from ITV News made in the North of England, focussing on the topics and issues which Northerners are talking about.

Each episode we put a single question to our panel and get their view from a northern perspective, from social issues to sport.

This week, we're asking "Does the North-South divide exist?"

ITV political journalist Hannah Miller puts the question to a panel of guests, finding out what the North-South divide means to them, and what should be done to narrow the gap.

Hannah is joined by the Guardian's North of England Editor Helen Pidd, broadcaster Terry Christian and Jessica Bowles from Bruntwood and the Northern Powerhouse Partnership.
