Two villages in South Derbyshire have been ranked in the top six of the best places to live in the county.

Willington and Etwall were sixth and fifth, respectively, in Derbyshire, on a new list that ranks locations in terms of how desirable they are to live in.

Property finding company Garrington's study includes more than 1,300 cities, towns and villages.

It takes into account factors including nature, quality of life and how the buildings look.

However, the list only includes places where 95 per cent of homes have access to superfast fibre broadband, so some locations are not included.

While Ashbourne and Wirksworth ranked particularly highly on the list, other places such as South Normanton and West Hallam were placed near the bottom.

Bath came top of the national list, followed by Tenby in Pembrokeshire and Bradford on Avon in Wiltshire, which ranked highly in all three categories. We should stress that we don't necessarily agree with the rankings - we think our county has some truly beautiful and wonderful places to live.
