A NEW survey has named York as the most polite city in Yorkshire.

The survey showed residents of the city are likely to put their own domestic standards on hold to accommodate their guests.

The study, by doormat company Turtle Mat, examined nationwide attitudes to cleanliness, judged on the number of people who take their shoes off when in their own home and ask guests to do the same.

About 77 per cent of York residents said they always removed their shoes in their own home, but almost two thirds would not trouble guests to remove theirs.

Bit of a random trigger into a survey. A dorrmat company asks a few people if they take their shoes off, and somehow we've got the result of York being the most polite city out of those results.

Next week, Bic biro's asks people how they use their pens, and we find out that Yorkshire is a rich county because lots of people use pens to write cheques!!
