Thirty-four percent of children in Grantham's Earlesfield ward are living in poverty, according to the results of a national survey published today.

The figure is the highest in South Kesteven.

The Campaign to End Child Poverty survey reveals how many children in the UK are living below the poverty line.

In South Kesteven the average percentage of children in poverty is 11, down compared to last year's report findings of 13 percent.

Other wards in Grantham and surrounding areas higher than the district average are Harrowby with 23 percent, St Anne's with 17 percent and St John's with 15 percent.

According to the report, on average throughout the UK one in five children (20.2 percent) is classified as below the poverty line - before housing costs.
