West Belfast has the second highest level of child poverty in the UK, according to a new report from the End Child Poverty campaign.

Out of the UK's 650 parliamentary constituencies, only Manchester Central recorded a higher level of deprivation.

The survey found that 43% of children grow up in poverty in West Belfast.

This was 3% lower than the previous year when it was 46%. But where rates fell markedly elsewhere over the year, this was not the case in West Belfast.
