Illicit Encounters in Newbury
The number of people up to no good in Newbury has been revealed.
The Infidelity Index, compiled by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, mapped the location data of its 1.1 million members against each town’s adult population to find the most adulterous towns, cities, and London boroughs in the country.
According to the data there are 873 people in Newbury registered on the site. That's up 20 from the previous year.
Other towns in the region are just as naughty. In fact in places like Reading there are even more people registered.
Reading - 1830
Bracknell - 1281
Newbury - 873
Basingstoke - 684
Wokingham - 480
Henley-on-Thames - 376
Thatcham - 250
Many of the top cheating towns were affluent areas in the south of England, such as Guildford (2nd), Ashford (5th) and High Wycombe (7th).
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, 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. “So, they seek the only other viable alternative that they have: an affair. It’s cheaper than a divorce, and it’s safer than ever before.”
