MORE than a third of children in Saltcoats and Stevenston are living in poverty, a shock report has revealed.

North Ayrshire has been revealed as the second worst local authority in Scotland according to a new child poverty map of the country published yesterday by the End Child Poverty coalition.

Overall, child poverty has increased by more than three per cent over the last two years.

According to the map, which ranks each local authority by the number of children whose household income is below 60 per cent of the median level once housing costs are deducted, North Ayrshire has a child poverty rate of 30.4 per cent – second only to Glasgow with 34.1 per cent. East Ayrshire is third worst on 28 per cent, with South Ayrshire eighth on 25.7 per cent.

This really angers me and my aim is to try and help just a little bit for the families living under these circumstances, Christmas is not long away it's a time for giving and I'm just trying to raise awareness about the issue and try as much as we can to work together to make a difference .

Thankyou
