Middlesbrough's been ranked in the bottom 10 poorest areas of the country.

Cannon Park in Middlesbrough was the only place outside the North West to feature in the bottom ten.

The stats come from the Church Urban Fund - a charity which raises money to fund community projects in deprived parts of England.

The list was put together by looking at government stats from a number of areas, including life expectancy and child poverty.

Liverpool features heavily in the list, with five areas making the top ten, including Toxteth West, which has up to 64% of children and 63% of pensioners living in poverty.
