Brent has been named as the third unhappiest borough in London for the second year running

According to the findings of a survey released today by property group Rightmove, residents in the borough have little to smile about.

Almost 24,000 people across the nation took part in the survey, based on 12 factors ranging from what the local services are like to the friendliness of their neighbours.

But Brent residents can crack a smile with the news that Barking and Dagenham in east London is the most unhappiest borough in the city according to the survey.

While residents in Richmond have a reason to skip to work every day as they have been deemed the happiest in the city for the second year in a row.
