NEW data shows which neighbourhoods have seen the highest number of coronavirus-related deaths.

An interactive map published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows how many people in each area of Trafford have died after contracting coronavirus.

The statistics show that 210 people died in the first three months of the pandemic and they were connected to COVID-19.

Breaking down England and Wales into more than 7,000 neighbourhoods, each with roughly 5,000-7,000 residents, the map explores which areas have seen the highest coronavirus-related deaths.

According to the figures Urmston East and Flixton and Moorside were the worst affected areas with 16 deaths each between March 1 and May 31.

Meanwhile, Sale Moor was the next highest with 13, followed by Altrincham West, Dunham and Warburton with 12 and Timperley East with 11.

Sale Central, Partington and West Timperley were the next worst affected areas with 10 deaths while Timperley South, Hale Barns and Bowdon were locked on nine cases.

Ashton-Upon-Mersey South had eight virus-related deaths then in Old Trafford and Davyhulme there was seven and Timperley North, Sale North, Stretford East and Urmston West had six deaths.

Gorse Hill and Sale East recorded five COVID-19 deaths and Firswood, Lostock and Stretford Meadows had four while Trafford Park West and Kingsway Park, Trafford Park East and Sevenways and Ashton Upon Mersey North had three deaths.

The lowest figures were seen in Broadheath and Firsway with two deaths during the period.

The ONS figures show that poorer areas have been the worst hit by the pandemic, with people in the most deprived areas of England more than twice as likely to die of covid-19 as those in the least deprived areas.

The highest figure recorded in the three month period was in Flixton and Moorside where 10 deaths took place in April.

The latest up-to-date statistics from ONS show that there have been 241 deaths in the borough since the start of the pandemic.

In the past seven days, three more people died in hospital which takes the total to 139 since the start.

There have been 87 deaths in care homes, nine at home, three in hospice and three elsewhere.

So far, 1,290 people have been tested positive for COVID-19 in Trafford which means they are ranked as the sixth worst area in Greater Manchester - behind Manchester (3,041), Oldham (1,917), Bolton (1,902), Stockport (1,661) and Bury (1,302).
