UK contends with poverty gap

Government accused of doing little to address widening rich-poor divide in many areas.

    The divide between rich and poor in the UK has widened over the past decade.

    At a critical time for the UK, with elections set for next month, politicians are battling over Britain's "broken" society.

    One such area is Tottenham in north London where the life expectancy for men is lower than that of some developing nations.
