Falinge Estate In Rochdale Named Most Deprived In UK For Fifth Consecutive Year
ROCHDALE, ENGLAND - JANUARY 08: Satellite dishes adorn the walls of homes on the Falinge Estate, which has been surveyed as the most deprived area in England for a fifth year in a row, on January 8, 2013 in Rochdale, England. According to data provided by the Department for Communities and Local Government, 72 per cent of people in the local area are unemployed and seven per cent have never had a job. Four out of five children on the estate are living in poverty, with the area having one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the country. During today's House of Commons debate, the government urged MPs to back their planned 1 per cent cap on annual rises in benefits and some tax credits for three years from next April. Benefits for people of working age have historically risen in line with the rate of inflation. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)
