A surge in Tinder users has helped owner Match Group post better-than-expected revenues for the three months to March.

The dating app - which lets users swipe right or left to like or reject potential matches -reported 4.7 million average subscribers in the quarter, 1.3 million more than last year.

That helped boost quarterly revenues for Match Group, a US-based firm that owns other dating sites including Match.com, by around 14% to $464.6m (£355.3).
