Infographic: Child poverty in Wanstead

While the new Work and Pensions secretary Amber Rudd defends the UK against a UN report on child poverty, figures have been published on a ward-by-ward basis setting out child poverty levels throughout England.

The figures for Wanstead and Snaresbrook are below a ward breakdown for Redbridge, using the boundaries before the reorganisation. The figures show that in Wanstead, after housing costs are taken into account, there were 420 children in poverty and in Snaresbrook ward, 298.
