Sheffield placed as the fourth worst city out of 19 cities in research by Onbuy.com.

With just under five weeks to go until Christmas Day, frantic shoppers will be looking to secure their bargain purchases over Black Friday on 25 November.

Perhaps it’s worth a trip to Scotland to avoid the queues- Glasgow and Edinburgh made it to the top five list for best queuing times for Black Friday.

Onbuy.com's Managing Director, Cas Paton, said: “The British love a good queue, and as a patient nation, most of us can cope with the long waits – especially the ones that end in a good bargain.”

Data was collected by surveying 120 households in each of the respective cities to understand how long they tend to wait in a queue on Black Friday in the past two years.
