We're all going to die. But those living in Tower Hamlets are likely to expire sooner than anyone else in London.

And before readers in Newham breathe a sigh of relief; you're only expecting a month or two more.

A study by Imperial College London has revealed there is as much as a decade's difference in life expectancy depending on where you live in the capital.

The research, published in The Lancet, revealed boys born in 2012 in Tower Hamlets would be lucky to see 78, where as girls born the same year living in the City could expect to reach 87.

The figures have prompted a warning about cuts to the NHS.

Lead researcher Professor Majid Ezzati said: "London is where deprivation and social class seem to have a particularly large role in terms of inequalities, with the wealthy and deprived parts of the city being separated by many years in life expectancy.

"It is quite likely that the inequalities in London will get even worse if the NHS and the care that it provides to people are weakened more."

Of the 375 local authority areas nationally Tower Hamlets came in 354 with Newham at 348.

There the figures are 77.6 for men and 82.5 for women, with Hackney only marginally better.

The place with the lowest life expectancy was Blackpool – 75 for men and 80 for women.
