Britain's High Streets are getting unhealthier, according to a report analysing 70 major UK towns and cities. reports citing BBC that the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) ranked High Streets with more payday lenders, bookmakers, tanning salons and fast food outlets the worst.

Grimsby led the unhealthy High Street list ahead of Walsall and Blackpool, while Edinburgh, Canterbury and Taunton had the healthiest outlets.

There was a clear link between deprived areas and unhealthy High Streets.

Outlets that were considered healthy included leisure centres, health services, libraries, museums and art galleries.

The report also considered pubs and bars as being a positive presence on the High Street because they are centres for social interaction.

However, pubs are in decline and many people are using the UK's 22,000 coffee shops as places to socialise, eat and drink instead.
