Rugby has made it into the list of the best places to live in the UK.

The survey of towns across the UK by Halifax placed Rugby at number 20. Top of the list was Hart in Hampshire.

The annual Halifax quality of life study, released over the weekend, looked at factors including health, earnings, crime rates and life expectancy.
