Loughton has been revealed to be the most edited Wikipedia page in the Houses of Parliament.

All the page edits attributed to the Houses of Parliament's IP addresses since 2003 were collated by the national Guardian, and surprisingly the Essex town came out on top.

The top 20 edited pages were released today and Loughton came top with 75 revisions.

The Wikipedia page of the Epping Forest town has a particularly large wealth of information for its size and a Westminster-based expert seems to be behind it.

Other notable pages in the list include dictator Saddam Hussain with 24 revisions and Gloucestershire town Stroud with 64 revisions.
