Isle of Wight village 'has high life expectancy'

Individuals living in a village on the Isle of Wight can expect to live a long life after it was named among the UK's top locations for life expectancy.

Seaview on the Isle of Wight is in the top ten places in the country in terms of the age men living there die at on average.

Matthew Fletcher, a senior consultant at Towers Watson, which conducted the research, stated the location a person resides in can be a "powerful" indicator of the age they could live to.

"A pensioner's address provides clues to other things linked to life expectancy, like their lifestyle and how much money they have from sources besides their pension," he said, pointing out people cannot boost their life expectancy simply by moving across the country.

Seaview is one of the areas on the Isle of Wight known to be popular among celebrities who visit the island, many of whom have their own holiday home close to the location.
