The only way is Essex for Britain's young renters, says Rightmove

Renters are flocking to Essex for cheap rents and accessibility to London, according to a new index from the property search website, Rightmove.

A study which measured email enquiries, searches and property views on the site, showed that six of the top ten rental hospots outside London were in Essex, home to the hit TV show, The Only Way is Essex (Towie.)

While Stevenage in Hertfordshire was the most popular individual town for renters, the Essex boltholes of Wickford, Basildon, Grays, Chelmsford and Braintree all featured in the top ten, along with Darford in Kent, Bristol and Wellingborough in Northamptonshire.
