Londoners lose out on Greater London Authority 'happy scale'

Londoners live in one of the richest and most successful cities in the world and yet it seems that wealth and opportunity does not necessarily buy you happiness.

A report by the Greater London Authority has shown its residents are the country's most unhappy and anxious, as well as felling less worthwhile and satisfied compared to all other UK residents.

BBC London's Charlotte Franks spoke to the report's author, Richard Walker, happiness economist Professor Nick Powdthavee from the London School of Economics and Sir Edward Lister, the Mayor of London's Chief of Staff.
