RUGBY is among the best places to live in the UK – and that’s official.

The town was placed 20th in the annual Halifax quality of life study which looked at a range of factors including health, earnings, crime rates and life expectancy.

Hart in Hampshire topped the list, followed by the Orkney Islands, with Rutland in the East Midlands third.
