OXFORD commuters are among the country's most stressed, according to a new survey.

Those travelling to the city for work are the UK's joint sixth most stressed, according to property company Good Move, which says 44 per cent of Oxford commuters admit that the journeys harm their mental health.

Ross Counsell, director at Good Move, said: “Daily commutes are harming the mental health of Brits all over the country, but many are still prepared to travel in order to have better jobs and homes.

“While everyone has an idea of their dream home or career, it is so important that people get a healthy work-life balance and don’t sacrifice their mental wellbeing.”

2,000 UK workers were surveyed in the study, with York and London commuters (both on 51 per cent) being the most stressed.

Bristol's commuters had the least stress, on 29 per cent.

The percentage nationwide rises dramatically among 25-34 year olds.
