Almost 10 percent of UK adults want to go vegan in 2018, according to a new poll.

Polling from 2016 shows that around one percent of GB adults - more than half a million - are currently vegan.

Double that number - 19 percent - of UK adults said they will try a vegan or dairy-free diet this year.

The research, by Blue Diamond, also found that a staggering 28 percent of young adults said they will try giving up cheese and milk this year.

The poll - which shows a growing interest in veganism - ties in with data from Veganuary.

A massive 135,000 people have signed up to take part in Veganuary this year - compared to 59,500 in 2017.

The charity - which encourages and supports people to try a vegan diet during January - expects sign-ups to pass 150,000 by the end of the month.

As a result of the polling, Blue Diamond has launched a new range of almond drinks, to cater to the growing number of people interested in ditching dairy.

Ian Greengrass, Managing Director at Blue Diamond Europe, said: "Following the research, we wanted to create a range of almond drinks that helps people jump on this trend and also provides added nutrition.

"We're always looking for innovative new ways to extend the dairy-free category."
