BELFAST has been voted the second kindest city in Britain and the North of Ireland – beaten to the top spot only by Bristol.

The Northern Irish capital won out over the likes of Glasgow, London and Liverpool in a survey run by Co-op Food.

Aberdeen came in third place while Southampton and Cardiff rounded off the top five.

More News:

Manchester made the top 10 but it was bad news for London, with the English capital coming in last place on a list of 19 cities.

A number of things are considered to make a city “kind”.

Running after someone who had dropped something to return it to them was found to be the most common kind deed, followed by giving up a seat on public transport for a pregnant passenger.

Belfast was also voted the ‘best UK city’ by readers of The Guardian earlier this month.
