Camden heads London malnutrition cases

Camden is suffering from the worst levels of malnutrition in London, according to Department of Health figures.

They show cases of malnutrition in England have nearly doubled in the last five years but in Camden they have increased almost nine-fold from six in 2008 to 53.

In Hillingdon, cases rose five-fold from 8 to 43, while in Brent they almost quadrupled from 10 to 38 and in Barnet they tripled from 11 to 38.

Camden Council said it was “worrying”.

Pat Callaghan of Labour-run Camden Council said financial hardship was a “major factor” and blamed “recent coalition government changes to welfare” for “aggravating this issue”.
