People in Northern Ireland are apparently the least happy in the UK with where they live, according to a new survey.

Although 82% said they were happy with where they lived, it was still the lowest rating out of the UK regions in the survey carried out by Co-op Insurance.

Wales ranked highest with 93%, with those in the south-west of England next and Scotland third happiest.

The survey of more than 2,000 people found that 70% of people said the price of a home was their key factor in decision making, with 65% saying location was their priority.

Neighbourly spirit is still alive and well though, as 67% of people said that a good community spirit was the key to being happy with where you live.
