Following the Ashley Madison hack a map has been created revealing that 863 people from Grantham have used the website for those who are married or in a relationship, but looking to have an affair.

Around 32 million users worldwide of the Canadian-based website, whose slogan is ‘Life is short, have an affair’ have had their details leaked onto the internet by hackers who have called themselves the Impact Team.

Using the leaked data a global map has been created online making it possible to see the number of users by location, as well as the percentage of male to female users.

According to the map there are 863 Ashley Madison users in Grantham, of which just under 94 per cent were male.

Of the 12 people reportedly registered on the website in Long Bennington, 100 per cent were male.

Normanton in Lincolnshire was also included in the map, where 277 users are recorded, 92 per cent male.

Lincoln recorded the highest number of users in the county, with 3,159, of which just under 91 per cent were male.
