According to Plant Based News, 1.5 million people in the UK are following a vegan diet for the benefit of the planet with projects such as Veganuary converting a number of meat-eaters.

Researchers praised the low price of fruit and vegetables in the city for having it pushed Newcastle up the rankings and into joint fourth.

Other data taken into consideration when producing the index score were the number of vegan-friendly restaurants, the % of restaurants that are vegan friendly, the number of Uber Eats restaurants delivering vegan food and the number of health & supplement shops.

Having fewer vegan-friendly restaurants in the city, just 252 cost Newcastle a place in the top three.

Edinburgh came out top in the rankings, closely followed by Chester in second and Nottingham in third place.

Newcastle came in joint fourth place alongside Brighton, Cambridge and Glasgow.

The worst city in the UK for those on a Vegan diet is Newry in Northern Ireland with a lowly 11 vegan-friendly restaurants and none delivering on Uber Eats.

Not far from Newcastle, North East city, Sunderland makes an appearance in the worst-off list, the eighth lowest-ranked in the UK.
