DescriptionDeprivation in Northern England is leading to a sharp rise in deaths among men, a study has found.

Data scientists at the University of Manchester say there is a “profoundly concerning” gap in mortality between North and the South, especially in men.

Deaths from accidents, alcohol and drug poisoning increased nationwide, but more quickly in the North, where deprivation tends to be greater and more widespread, the researchers found.
