People in Scotland report higher levels of kindness - both giving and receiving of it - than any other part of the UK - so says a report produced by the Carnegie UK Trust. 

Over 1000 people aged 16 and over were asked for their opinions on place, kindness in communities, kindness in public services and whether people in Scotland's communities had any influence over the way that the country was run.

Reading the research it is interesting to see that people in Scotland report higher levels of kindness than any other part of the UK.

One stand-out statistic is that 72% of people in Scotland felt that they could count on someone from their local community keeping an eye on their property while they were away.

The other stand-out statistic was that although Scottish people report high levels of kindness, they also felt they had the least influence on public policy!
