Friends stay in touch.

A QUARTER of people living in the North East still keep in touch with their best school friend.

The new survey has also found four out of 10 people in the region are still close to their first friend from their school days - more than in other parts of the country.

The poll was carried out by snack maker Pom-Bear to highlight its Let Make Friends campaign which revealed marked differences in friendship patterns throughout the UK.

The survey of 1,050 adults found the average Brit only counted five of their current day acquaintances as "close friends". Roxanne Amir-Mohammadi, brand manager for Pom-Bear, said: "Even though many of us can count many more people in our wider circle of acquaintances, we are still quite choosy when it comes to defining who we consider to be our real friends."
