Rural savers typically have around £1,500 more squirrelled away than their urban counterparts, a report has found.

People living in the countryside have £10,357 put aside for a rainy day on average, which is £1,537 more than people living in towns and cities who typically have £8,820 in their nest egg, according to Halifax's "savings barometer" of England and Wales.
