Their city may be famed for its warm climate, easy-access to world class beaches and stunning harbour, but Sydneysiders are apparently desperate to get away and move to London - according to one piece of research at least.

Movebubble, an app that specialises in "renter-dedicated property service", has analysed over 45,000 searches for rentals in London from people in 20 of the world's "most cosmopolitan" cities.
