The research, by National Savings and Investments, also found that more than half of all people were now setting aside money on a regular basis, the first time this has been the case since the winter of 2007/2008.

The amount people are saving has also reached its highest level since then at 6.98 percent of their pay, the equivalent of 87.37 pounds.
