BARRY is the most faithful town in the UK, according to a survey released today. (March 20)

The official Infidelity Index 2017 lists the UK's most adulterous towns and cities.

Topping the most adulterous list in Wales was Newport, which was also 18th most adulterous city in the country.

The Infidelity Index, compiled by, the UK's leading dating website for married people, ranks the top 140 cheating towns in the entire country.

Barry, according to the survey, is home to just 88 adulterers, a meagre 0.18 per cent of its population.

Site spokesman, Christian Grant said: "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."

"When it comes to Wales, they’re responsible for the most faithful town and second most faithful city in the entire country, Barry and Bangor.”
