Snapshot shows Torbay's healthiest - and unhealthiest - areas
PEOPLE living in Churston and Galmpton are the healthiest in Torbay.
They live longer and enjoy better health than their counterparts in other parts of the bay, figures confirm.
However, the figures highlight a bay full of contrasts, with Torquay's Watcombe ward showing the highest levels of child poverty in Torbay.
The figures are some of the highest in the West Country.
