Bromley is one of the happiest places to live in London, according to new figures.

The borough ranked third for cheeriness in the capital, where some places were the most miserable in the UK.

High levels of contentment might help, as most residents said they were satisfied with their lives.

Self-worth also topped the table and people reported low levels of stress.

The survey by the Office for National Statistics asked how satisfied people were with their lives, how worthwhile they were and how happy and anxious they felt the previous day.
