A WEBSITE specialising in adultery has revealed Oxford is the fastest growing city for infidelity in the UK.

Latest figures from IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people, show the city has seen the biggest rise in signups since the start of 2018.

Oxford beat Gloucester and London into second and third respectively to match its position in the website's 'official' Infidelity Index, which reckons 12,868 affairs are currently taking place in the city.

With children going back to school and university-age offspring flying the nest, Illicit Encounters said this is traditionally the busiest time of the year for adulterers.
