People in the North West of England are the most likely to bank and shop online.

This is according to the Association of Payments and Clearing Services (Apacs), which has created an interactive map online to show how people in different regions of the UK bank.

"We split it up regionally because in the past people have complained that we do not offer enough information about the region they live in," said a spokeswoman.

The map shows that people in the North West are the biggest users of online banking and also make the most online purchases every year.

According to Apacs 55% of people in the North West use online banking and the average online shopper makes 18 buys every year.

This compares to 48% of Londoners using online banking,where those that shop online buy an average of 15 things each year.
