Life expectancy for men in Havering is falling, according to new data from the Office of National Statistics.

Boys born in the borough between 2014 and 2016 are expected to live for 80 years, one month – down slightly from 80 years, two months in the previous two year period.

Researchers predict baby girls born after 2014 will live for 84 years, two months on average, increasing from 84 years, one month in 2013-2015.

People have been living longer since the turn of the century. Girls born between 2001 and 2003 in Havering are predicted to live for 80 years, 11 months – while the rate for boys is 76 years, seven months and 11 days.

Baby boys born in the UK are now predicted to live to be 79 years, two months on average, rising to 83 years, one month for girls.

National rates have remained largely unchanged since life expectancy was last assessed in 2013-2015.
