However, Public Health England has urged caution over the figures, which it said came from an on-line flu survey set up during the swine flu pandemic in 2009 as an indicator of flu activity in the community.

National newspapers have claimed that flu consultations in the city are running at 104.4 per 100,000 people, not far short of a level of 108.9 per 100,000 which would signal an epidemic and which compares with a national average of 34.9.

YORK has the highest rate of flu in England, according to a national survey.
