People in Scotland are more likely to eat vegan than those in any other part of the UK, a new survey suggests.

The survey, conducted by sports nutrition brand Myprotein, found that Scots are most likely to eat vegan or organically, with Aberdonians being the highest spenders on such products.

Almost two percent of people from Edinburgh said they spend more than £100 per month on vegan products - more than 10 times the national average of 0.17 percent.

Meanwhile, Liverpool was found to be the 'supplement capital' of the UK, with almost all respondents saying they buy such products every month and spend an average of £47.35, compared with the UK average of £39.63.

Scots were also found to be the overall highest spenders when it comes to supplements, fitness clothing, gym memberships, meal plans, and personal trainers.

The Myprotein survey had 2,800 respondents from the UK and Ireland aged between 18 and 65.
