The Yorkshire Evening Post is proud to fly the flag to champion our great county and its people.

Standby for the usual stereotypes as undoubtedly flat caps, whippets and Yorkshire Puddings are rolled out by anyone who isn’t lucky enough to live here.

What is clear from the survey is identity is right at the heart of our county.
