Antrim named in UK's 'Crap Towns' list

Antrim has been awarded the dubious honour of the worst place to live in the North, according to a new book.

The second edition of [url=http://craptownsreturns.com/]'Crap Towns'[/uel] ranked Antrim 35th in the Top 50 worst places in the UK.

Author Sam Jordison says although he has never been to Antrim - he's been told it suffers from "sectarian troubles" and has been described by those who nominated it as "dangerous".

He said the ‘Crap Towns Returns’ is “generally tongue-in-cheek” and is compiled through nominations submitted since 2012.

London is number one and Sheernef, near Kent, in is in 50th place on the list.
