THE happiest place on earth might be Disneyland but the happiest place in the UK is Sheffield. According to a new survey, strangely conducted by the Transform Cosmetic Surgery Group (TCSG), the people of Sheffield are the happiest in the whole of Britain. The survey took into account personal confidence, health, relationships, social lives, the stress of living expenses, age and a host of other things. But in the end Sheffield came out on top!

Some well-known public figures from the city of Sheffield include gold medal Olympic athlete Jessica Ennis, bands Def Leppard, the Arctic Monkeys and musicians Joe and Jarvis Cocker to name a few. With music and sporting success, no wonder these Brits are so happy!
