LONDON, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Almost 7.5 million people, including 2.6 million children, live in poverty in Britain despite being in working household, a report revealed Wednesday.


A study by the Rowntree Foundation said one in every eight workers in Britain are living in poverty. The charity said it means a record high of 55 percent people in poverty are in working households.


The stark statistics have emerged in the report, Monitoring Poverty and Social Exclusion 2016, an annual state of the nation report written for the independent Joseph Rowntree Foundation by the New Policy Institute. It has found that 13.5 million people, 21 percent of Britain's population, are now living in poverty.


Rowntree's Helen Barnard said Wednesday: "The economy has been growing since 2010 but during this time high rents, low wages and cuts to working-age benefits mean that many families, including working households, have actually seen their risk of poverty grow."


"This report shows that people on low-incomes cannot rely on economic growth and rising employment alone to improve their financial prospects. Families who are just about managing urgently need action to drive up real-term wages, provide more genuinely affordable homes and fill the gap caused by cuts to Universal Credit (welfare reforms) which will cost a working family of four almost 1,000 pounds (1,260 U.S. dollars) a year," she added.


Dr Peter Kenway, director of the New Policy Institute, said: "An adult in poverty today is much more likely to be young, working and a tenant living the private rented sector than 15 years ago."


The report found there is growing insecurity underneath positive economic headlines, adding that since 2010-2011, when the economic recovery began, in-work poverty has increased by 1.1 million people.


The number of people living in poverty in privately rented homes has doubled in a decade, from 2.2 million households to 4.5 million households, the study showed.


More than half of people in poverty live in London and southern England, it added.


SHANGHAI http://www.wholesaleairvapormaxplus.com/ , Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- When 12-year-old Ming Ming was pulled out of the panic-stricken crowd, dirty shoe prints covered the new clothes he put on for the New Year.


His mouth and nose were bleeding. People around him were screaming, crying and calling for help.


Ming Ming was saved by his mother, a woman who gave her surname as Yin. They are both survivors of the bloody New Year stampede late Wednesday in Shanghai that killed at least 36 and injured another 47.


Yin and her son were standing at the crowded the Chen Yi Square wholesale nike vapormax triple white , in memory of late Marshal Chen who was also a Shanghai mayor, near the Bund area.


The Bund, a stretch of riverbank on the west side of the illuminated and bright Huangpu River, saw thousands of revelers ushering in the New Year against the backdrop of historic architecture and dazzling skyscrapers at night.


On the other side of the river stands the Oriental Pearl Tower wholesale nike vapormax triple black , a building representing the miracle of China's booming economy over the past decades.


Not far away from the Bund, the newly-established Shanghai Free Trade Zone (FTZ) has been a pride of the country.


The mood was high. The crowd, mostly college students dressed in festive clothes and snapping pictures with their mobile devices, was waiting for the count-down.


But suddenly wholesale nike vapormax plus , Yin, whose five family members were standing on the steps adjoining the major road and the sightseeing platform, felt something had gone wrong. A commotion erupted and people began pushing her and her family around.


"The steps leading to the platform were full of people. Some wanted to get down and some wanted to go up. We were caught in the middle and saw some girls falling while screaming," she said. "Then people started to fall down wholesale nike vapormax white , row by row."


The crowd started to panic. Yin covered two children in front of her with her arms and then turned back to call Ming Ming, who followed her.


"He had already tumbled to the ground," said the teary woman.


Ming Ming is now receiving treatment in a local hospital along with the other injured, mostly youths in their twenties.


Wu Tao wholesale nike vapormax black , a young man from Anhui Province, was in the middle of the crowd on the Bund enjoying the light show when the tragedy happened. He recalled that the crowd was in chaos after some people shouted, "There is money falling from above!"


He said some coupons that looked like U.S. dollar bills were being thrown from a building's third-floor window across the street.


"People near the building rushed at first. Then coupons were blown to the Bund's sightseeing platform by a strong wind, and many children and young people started to scramble for the coupons wholesale nike vapormax cheap ," he said.


"A girl beside me fell and was injured after being trampled. I pulled her out of the crowd and sent her to the hospital," the young man said.


Xinhua reporters saw a picture of one of the coupons taken by a witness surnamed Chen. The coupon resembled a U.S. hundred dollar banknote with M18 in the middle, referring to a bar of the same name along the Bund.


The exact cause of the incident has not yet been confirmed.


Some survivors said they were reluctant to recall the scene, which they described as "horrific and hellish."


"It was too crowded to make a turn and we felt squeezed almost out of breath standing in the crowd wholesale nike vapormax shoes ," said Yu, a woman who survived the incident. "There were people screaming and shouting -- Police, help me."


But it was too noisy and turbulent. Many fell over and people started trampling one another, said Yu who gave only her surname.


"When escorting my friend to the hospital wholesale nike air vapormax , I saw four others in the ambulance, all badly injured," she said, adding that the only one who remained conscious was spitting blood.


"It was too grisly a scene to recall wholesale nike vapormax ," Yu said.
