People in the town of Altrincham near Manchester enter the most online searches for payday loan company Wonga, new research has revealed.

The data, released by Google, shows which towns across the UK had the most searches for ‘payday loan’ and ‘Wonga’ so far this year.

Liverpool and Bolton can also be found fairly high up on the list, while London came in at number 11.

Although the list accounts for population size, it still seems to be mostly filled with the UK’s major cities, including Glasgow and Birmingham.

Here is the top 15 UK cities and towns that searched for payday loans so far in 2014:

1. Altrincham

3. Nazeing (Essex)
