Global corruption index 2014: The world’s most corrupt countries in one amazing interactive map...........

Britain only ranks 14th out of 175 countries included in the corruption index, released by Transparency International today.
On a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean, the UK was given a score of 78.
The score means Britain continues to miss out on a spot on the top 10, losing out to Singapore and New Zealand.

A spokesperson for Transparency International said the UK has made slow progress.
The UK only gained two points on last year due to the introduction of the Bribery Act.
He said: ‘But there is more to do, the UK should be in the top 10.
‘The result next year may depend on the government’s upcoming anti-corruption action plan and whether the new government, post-May, sticks to commitments made within it.’
Denmark tops the corruption index with a score of 92, with Finland and Norway also making the top 10.
The worst countries on the index are Somalia and North Korea with a corruption index rating of just 8.
