Teenage suicides in London have increased at more than four times the national rate, as growing levels of deprivation and hopelessness grip the young people in the capital, the Independent news website reported on Thursday.

New figures show self-inflicted deaths among Londoners aged between 10 and 19 have more than doubled since 2013, rising by 107 per cent in the three years to 2016 – from 14 to 29 – while across England and Wales the equivalent number increased by 24 per cent.
