Bamber Bridge comes out on top

Bamber Bridge has been named as the most adulterous area of Lancashire.

The Infidelity Index, compiled by Illicit Encounters (a dating website for married people), compiled the location data of 1.1 million members and compared them against their town’s population to find the areas where the most people are unfaithful.

Bamber Bridge was the area where it is most common in Lancashire and ranked 39th in the entire country with 1.13% of the population cheating.

Blackburn (57th), Blackpool (80th) and Burnley (104th) all made the 140 top adulterous towns in the country, with 0.86%, 0.68% and 0.55% of their respective adult populations currently cheating.

Christian Grant, spokesperson for the site, commented on the findings: “People have had affairs since the dawn of time, but the last decade in particular has seen a large spike.

“The site has grown exponentially, and it’s thanks to the turbulent economy and increase in house prices that has left many people financially crippled, unable to divorce should their marriage hit the rocks.

“The good news for those living in Lancashire is that it could be worse. While four towns all appeared in the top 140, none broke the top 10, or even the top 20.

“As for the region’s big city, it, too, failed to post in the upper end of the city index, which means that the citizens of Lancashire can sleep safe in the knowledge that they belong to one of the most faithful counties in the entire country.”
