Childcare costs rise 7.4 times faster than wages in London

Childcare costs for young children have more than seven times faster than wages since 2008 in London, a study suggests.

TUC research shows that average costs in England for parents with a one-year-old rose 48% between 2008 and 2016, while average wages increased 12% - writes itv.com.

The government says it has doubled the free childcare available to working parents of three and four-year-olds.

The trade union body, the TUC, said that, while parents with children aged two and above received financial support from the government, most working parents with one-year-olds did not get any state help.
