Derry features in 11th place in a list of cities within devolved administrations which includes Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow and several others.

It's not all doom and gloom though as PwC praised Derry, Perth and Dundee for what it describes as "strong improvements" since the last time the report was published in 2017.

Elsewhere, Belfast is, according to the PwC report, better than major UK cities like Newcastle, Liverpool and Sheffield; it's listed in 32nd place in the Good Growth for Cities Index.
