PARTS of Oxfordshire have retained their titles as two of the best locations to live in the UK, but have slipped down the table.

Halifax bank’s annual survey assessing quality of life listed South and West Oxfordshire in its top 50 locations, placing at numbers 14 and 28 respectively.

Both fell from their positions in the 2016 report, when South Oxfordshire sat at number 13 and West Oxfordshire at 11.

The survey data-crunched details including about weather, house prices, residents' health and employment. 

In 2016 Vale of White Horse ranked at 39, but disappeared from the top 50 this year.

Hart in North East Hampshire was crowned the UK's best place to live, taking the top spot.
