Ipswich is the fifth best place in England to be a primary school child, according to a new study.

Play Like Mum has taken data from local councils, Yelp and Day Out with the Kids to find out which towns and cities have the most museums, libraries and soft play centres per 10,000 people.

They also calculated the number of Ofsted outstanding providers in each area.

Ipswich ranked fifth in the survey, bettered only by Norwich, Cambridge, Oxford and Brighton.

The survey says Norwich has 0.616 parks and 0.704 libraries per 10,000 people and 0.264 museums for every 10,000 as well as 0.352 soft play areas per 10,000 people.

Ipswich was ninth on the list of the number of outstanding Ofsted providers for every 10,000 people, with 1.496.
