Boro is UK’s cash capital


PEOPLE in Middlesbro­ugh are the most likely to carry cash on them.

Some 92% always have notes, pipping Cambridge (91%) and Exeter (90%).

Those in Cardiff were least likely, at 46%, followed by Newport (50%) and Dudley, West Mids (57%).

The study by Transact Payments Limited marked the 55th anniversar­y of the first ATM in the UK in Enfield, North London, on June 27, 1967.

It said despite a rise in card and digital payments “consumers believe cash is here to stay”.
