Ipswich has been named the unhappiest place to live in Suffolk, according to new figures. 

Suffolk's happiest and unhappiest places to live have been revealed using well-being data analysed by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The ONS has used the results of a national survey that asked people to rate their level of happiness during the 12 months up to March 2023 to give district council areas an average figure.

People were asked to rate their life satisfaction, happiness and anxiety levels out of 10.
