Huddersfield has been voted the second worst place to live in the UK by the people who call it home.
The results of a controversial annual poll from iLiveHere.co.uk show the Yorkshire town jumped up one spot from last year, when one local said : “There’s nothing but pound shops and a few coffee shops.”
This time around the reviews were just as scathing. One person said: “Huddersfield should be avoided by all those who desire to keep their wallets, mobile phones and most of all their sense of smell.”
Once again Huddersfield was pipped to top spot by Peterborough, which has won the dubious honour of worst place to live for the third year running.
There was good news for some other Yorkshire towns though, with three of them dropping out of the top ten.
Rotherham dropped a massive 29 places to 34th, while Doncaster and Keighley dropped nine and five places respectively to 11th and 12th.
In third place was Liverpool.
One voter said: “I can’t put into words just how miserable growing up in this horrid place has been.
“The people attempt to grind you and your individuality down because they fear people with more than single digit IQs and who dress in clothes other than the latest black track suit.”
The full results:
- Jaywick Sands
- Newton Abbot
- Stoke on Trent
- Brandon, Suffolk
- Barking & Dagenham
