Aberdeen one of best places to live for cost of housing and travel

Mercat Cross, Aberdeen

ABERDEEN has been rated one of the best places in the UK to work and live – based on housing, travel, jobs and crime.

Sunderland, Leeds and Aberdeen topped a list drawn up by finance firm OneFamily, following a study of issues such as affordable houses and work-life balance.

Workers in Leeds were least likely to move for higher pay, the research suggested.

A survey of 2,000 adults indicated the highest cost of living was in London and Brighton – where travel, housing and other bills were higher than average salaries.
