THE recession has helped spark a wave of emigration of Londoners seeking a better life abroad, according to figures out today.
London is now Britain’s top city’ for those wanting to start life afresh overseas, with Australia a favourite destination for fed up Brits.

“London seems to be an emigration hotspot in the UK,” said Paul Arthur from the Emigration Group.
