Brits reckon the most trustworthy tradesmen are electricians, found a new poll.

Sparkies topped the list in a study of 2,000 Brits’ views, closely followed by window cleaners and plumbers.

Electricians were also voted to have the best manners and to be the most punctual and presentable looking of all tradesmen.

There’s room for improvement for other trades as scaffolders, glaziers and tilers came bottom of the list.

The poll commissioned by clothing firm Helly Hansen’s Workwear brand seems to suggest appearance does matter.

Two-thirds (58%) of people said they are more likely to hire someone wearing a uniform. However cost seemed to be the key factor when choosing who to pick, word of mouth from other people also played a big part.

When it comes to having a joke plumbers were seen as the most likely to try out their best comic lines and also voted the friendliest workers, followed by window cleaners.
