Warrington has been named one of the best places in the country to find a job.
Job site search engine Adzuna put the borough fifth in the list published this week.
Competition per job vacancy was rated at 0.14 in the area.
Council leader Terry O’Neill said: “Yet again Warrington is topping the charts in the north.
“We have consistently punched above our weight in terms of growth and investment and this is another example of how the borough is continuing to buck the economic trend despite the level of cuts from central government.”
