UK becoming 'more local and global'

7 April 2014 Last updated at 20:10 BST

Many people in the UK feel a growing connection with others in their neighbourhood and the wider world, but shrinking ties with their own country.

The figures come from a survey for the BBC's Who Do We Think We Are? project, which asked if people felt more or less connected to others than a decade ago.

More people said neighbourhood ties and links with the global community were getting stronger rather than weaker.
