What’s up with Blackpool?

Something is up with the north-west tourist spot of Blackpool (pictured), in England. Children in the town are almost twice as likely to die before their first birthday than elsewhere in England and Wales.

In 2017 Blackpool had 6.7 deaths for every 1,000 live births, against the England and Wales average of 3.9 deaths.
