Majority of kids poor in some areas
In parts of London and Greater Manchester you are now more likely to grow up poor than not.
The east London borough of Tower Hamlets has a 53% child poverty rate. In the Coldhurst ward of Oldham it's 62%, according to the End Child Poverty charity coalition.
More than two in five kids live in poverty in 25 parliamentary constituencies. Most are in the three largest urban areas: London, Birmingham and Greater Manchester - but there are patches across Britain.
It's obvious why. Cuts to wages and benefits while living costs rise.
Where does the money from those cuts and price hikes go? Here's a clue: last year Britain contained more billionaires than at any time in history. 134 billionaires, worth over £301 billion, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
