Wellbeing highs and lows.

MANY of the most anxious people in Britain live in London's commuter belt, new figures suggest.

People who live in Reading, Slough, Milton Keynes and Brighton are among the biggest worriers in the country, new Office for National Statistics (ONS) data showed.

The new ONS data on personal well-being also highlights that people living in Stoke-on-Trent in the West Midlands have the lowest levels of self-worth and life satisfaction.

People in the region are also unhappy - reporting the third lowest levels of happiness in the nation behind Bedford and Merseyside.

On the other end of the scale, the remote Scottish isles appear to be the happiest places to live in Britain.

People who live in Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles report the highest levels of life satisfaction, self-worth and happiness in the whole of Great Britain.
