It came ahead of Sheffield in 17th place where 11 per cent of shoppers are on the look out for the best deals.

They were the only two Yorkshire cities making the final top 20.

Top of the list was Cardiff and London came in at fifth place.

A spokesperson for NetVoucherCodes.co.uk said: “We wanted to look into which cities had the highest percentages of thrifty shoppers, and to see if any patterns emerged.

“We were really surprised by what the results threw up, we didn’t expect London to finish so high on the list but it just goes to show that even in the bigger cities people are always looking for ways to cut down on their spending.”
