SOUTH Cambridgeshire is the second best place to live in Great Britain, according to a new survey.

The area has been named as the runner-up to mid-Suffolk in the Halifax Rural Area Quality of Life Survey, which considered factors such as house prices, labour market, housing market, environment, education, and health.

Cllr Ray Manning, leader of South Cambridgeshire district council, said: "We're very proud of our district and it's always fantastic to hear from independent sources that South Cambridgeshire is a great place to live."

The district is also one of the three healthiest areas surveyed, with 95 per cent of households rating themselves as in good or fairly good health.
