A CHILD poverty map of the West Midlands puts Rugby towards the lower end of the scale.

The borough’s figure currently stands at 13 per cent of children, compared to 27 per cent in Coventry and 11 per cent in Warwick District.

The map was published by the Campaign to End Child Poverty last week. The borough’s figure has been rising year on year.
