Married couples in Newham are more faithful than their neighbours in Tower Hamlets and Barking and Dagenham – according to research from a website that helps people to have affairs.

User data from IllicitEncounters says that almost 9,000 Newhamites are seeking a bit on the side.

That’s 2.61 per cent of its population, making it London’s fifteenth naughtiest borough.

Meanwhile 3.39 per cent of people in Barking and Dagenham are on the prowl – and those who live in Tower Hamlets might want to look up a good divorce lawyer, as it comes in at sixth place with over 14,500 people looking for an extramarital fling.

The naughtiest borough overall is Islington, whilst Ealing couples are the most loved-up.
