Havering is home to one of the least Instagrammed places in London.

Upminster Bridge, on the District line, ranks second from last out of the 270 tube stations.

Instagram, the popular photo sharing app allows users to share pictures of their favourite spots, animals or dish.

The rankings were compiled by Love Home Swap and uses tube stations to mark out where the most and least Instagrammed places are.

The other three tube stations in Havering fare slightly better, Hornchurch having 15,892 posts, Upminster 10,240 and Elm Park 3,006.

While Romford was not included in the rankings as a London Overground station, there are a whopping 56,413 posts using the hashtag Romford.

The most Instagrammed place in London is Wimbledon, home to the oldest tennis tournament in the world attracting over 500,000 spectators every year, with 615,831 posts.
