Mental health experts have warned that the younger generation is most at risk.

Of those who said they were lonely, the biggest group was under 30 - 23 per cent compared with a national average of 15 per cent.

This is despite social networking sites like Facebook.

"People who feel lonely should not feel uncomfortable talking about it or asking for help," the Daily Express quoted Dr Andrew McCulloch, of the Mental Health Foundation, as saying.
