£317.5m lying about in loose change

Men keep more loose change in the house than woman, according to a study

Britons are hoarding an estimated £317.5 million in loose change in their homes, a new study has found.

Men tend to leave more loose change lying around than women, typically keeping £18.18, compared with about £10.19 for women, according to Lloyds TSB's findings.

One person in 10 has between £50 and £100 in change - while 3% of those surveyed said they had more than £100 at home.

People living in the North keep the highest typical amounts at home, with an average of £18.24, while those living in Wales tend to hoard the least, with only £7.78 on average kept in change at home.

More than 2,000 people took part in the research.
