More cash in pockets.

HUDDERSFIELD has come 38th in a list of towns which have been shown to have the most disposable income.

The figures, which have been compiled by an accountancy group, show that Aberdeen has enjoyed the fastest disposable income rise in the UK in recent years, boosted by the strength of its oil industry.

Glasgow and Dundee also came in the top five, with London in second place.

The average disposable household income after outgoings like tax, mortgage payments and pension contributions rose by nearly 25% in Aberdeen between 2004 and the end of 2009, when the latest figures could be obtained.

In 2004 people living in the Aberdeen area had pounds 13,669 left over.

But this figure jumped by 24.65% over the five years to pounds 17,039.

In Huddersfield over the same period, the figure has risen from pounds 11,595 to pounds 12,968, a rise of 11.84%.

The research was carried out by accounting group UHY Hacker Young.
