In an interview, in which he spoke about the inequality, labour market, leadership candidate Sir Keir Starmer told BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg : "Here in Somers Town , the Life Expectancy there is 10 years less than a mile up The Road . "
The only area in London in male Life Expectancy 10 years higher than St Pancras and Somers Town , Knightsbridge and Belgravia, where the Life Expectancy for men at birth was 89. 1, and for the women it was 91. 5.
the boundaries of The two areas are one and a half miles away from each other, so only a touch More Than Sir Keir suggested.

"The differences in mortality are only the tip of The Iceberg . "
