Tiring times; HEALTH.

Divorced middle-aged men are becomingly increasingly bad-tempered, emotional and are under-performing at work because of a lack of sleep, a study revealed today.

The Sleep Report, carried out by market research organisation GFK NOP, found that divorced male lawyers, aged 55, who live in London are the UK's worst sleepers and as a result are suffering problems.

The UK-wide research asked 2,000 adults to reveal what disturbs their sleep at night.

It found that divorced London male lawyers in their 50s only get an average of four hours sleep each night, which seriously affects their day-to-day lives. The study also pinpointed single female bar workers, aged 20, from the East Midlands as Britain's best sleepers with around 10 hours sleep a night.

Meanwhile, the Welsh way of life seems to come with the least economic and personal worries.
