Divided city

Figures recently published by health services show Burngreave still tops the Sheffield tables for deprivation, and the wealth gap between Sheffield neighbourhoods is wider than ever.

The study, which compared 2003 Council benefit levels, showed Burngreave and Woodside in the five most deprived neighbourhoods, alongside Darnall, Manor and Stubbin/Brushes.

Although overall Sheffield levels of Income Support have reduced, the gap between the most affluent (0.5% on benefits) and the poorest (42% on benefits) widened last year for the first time since 1996.
