New parents should consider selling up and moving to Hertfordshire, according a new study which has just named the county the UK’s best place to raise a family.

Top exam results, good pay prospects and plenty of sunshine, combined with lots of GPs and fast broadband, place Hertfordshire firmly at the top of the uSwitch Better Family Life index.

The index, which ranks 138 local authorities on 33 factors it considers important to family life, named Cambridgeshire as the second best county in which to bring up a family.
