A report has found that we work the longest hours in Europe. We also spend less time eating and sleeping, and face some of the highest housing costs and the longest commutes.

It's not all doom and gloom however, as the study - by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) - also showed we are some of the happiest people in the world.
