Motherwell Is Named Love Rat Capital Of The County


Motherwell topped the fling table after 972 cheats signed up for the illcit Encounters website. The North Lanarkshire town was the only place in Scotland to make the UK-wide top 20 list.

The website's Christian Grant said, "Motherwell isn't exactly the first name you'd expect to pop up. But don't judge a book by its cover. Beneath their exterior lies a fun and promiscous side. This is possibly the most exciting thing to ever happen to Motherwell."

Now you know what towns are having the most affairs, where in the county are they doing this?

The Holiday Inn at Strathclyde Park.

The hotel is just a stone’s throw away from the M74 and easy access to motorways and reasonable prices are thought to be the reasons why the chain hotel is so popular with cheats. Also included on the infidelity list is the Travelodge on the M80, near Cumbernauld, which came second top.

Six thousand of the 570,000 members of Illicit Encounters voted in the survey, naming the hotels they like to use to meet up with their lovers. The website describes itself as a “discreet and confidential extra-marital dating service”.

Sara Hartley, of Illicit Encounters, said: "Although many spouses would love to run off to the Highlands for the weekend, it just isn't possible - especially since very few alibi business meetings happen outside major cities."
