A new study from the WWF shows that residents of Newport and Plymouth have the least impact on the environment, out of 60 mainland UK cities ranked in the report. Nice work.
Winchester, meanwhile, is the worst.
The report ranks the 60 cities in England, Scotland and Wales by the average ecological footprint of their residents. Glasgow came top and Edinburgh bottom in Scotland, whilst Newport had the lowest footprint and Bangor the highest in Wales.
These results show a damning picture for the UK, as even those cities at the lower end of the scale are consuming more than their fair share of natural resources. However, there are examples of cities that have tackled particular issues such as London, which has a very low transport footprint.
