Manchester is the most trusting city – rise of neighbourly deeds in capital of North

Friday 26 November 2010, by

Nearly half (49%) of people living in Manchester have entrusted their neighbour with a key to their home for use in an emergency compared to just 37% of people living in Birmingham.

The study from online classifieds site highlights hotspots of neighbourliness across the country, with Mancunians proving most likely to perform neighbourly deeds including popping round for coffee (44%) and asking someone to keep an eye on their house (67%).
