This is another news story that's a few months old but still, I found it fascinating. I'm sure this trend wont have changed since Sep or Oct when these findings were published.
The average advertised salary in London has hit 41,500 pounds - making it 10,000 pounds more than the average advertised salary in the rest of the UK.
Jobs search engine AllTheTopBananas.com has analysed 633,766 jobs published between March and August 2008.
Excluding London figures, the average advertised salary around the UK is 31,128 pounds.
East Anglia has the highest average outside the capital, at 34,487 pounds. And the North West is the lowest at 29,676 pounds.
Dave Martin is MD of AllTheTopBananas.com, which carries one in three UK vacancies.
He said: 'Advertised salaries are rising faster in London than the rest of the UK and the gap is getting bigger. This is a trend that is likely to continue throughout the next 12 months.
'We are also seeing advertised salaries continue to rise overall, putting added pressure on inflation. There's a chance this could add to the UK's economic woes in the next 12 months.'
