Coastal residents earning less than those inland
14 October 2019
BBC News analysis found that that workers living in seaside areas in Great Britain earn on average £1,600 less per year than those living inland.
The research also showed that two-thirds of coastal areas have seen a real terms fall in wages since 2010.
The All Parliamentary Group for Coastal Communities said the findings showed seaside towns are "being left behind", but the Government insisted its £200m Coastal Communities Fund is changing lives.
