Girls in parts of England can expect to live to over 100

Girls born in parts of England can expect to live to over 100 for the first time, a report has found.

Figures from government body Public Health England show girls living in parts of Northumberland could live to 105.

However girls living in parts of Bradford have the lowest life expectancy in England, at 72.

Professor John Newton, the body's chief knowledge officer told BBC Radio 5 live's Shelagh Fogarty: "We should believe that health can be improved, even in the areas that aren't doing so well."
