What no Preston?

This is fantastic: Hackney is OFFICIALLY the worst place in Britain to live. Hurrah!

Here's the top ten:
1. Hackney, east London
2. Tower Hamlets, east London
3. Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales
4. Newham, east London
5. Islington, north London
6. Middlesbrough, North East
7. City of Nottingham, East Midlands
8. Strabane, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland
9. Blaenau Gwent, south Wales
10. Manchester, North West

Doesn't really add up though, does it. I mean, if you're not partial to getting shot, mugged or high on your way home from the pub, you could probably afford to give Clapton Pond a miss, but I'm still not entirely sure that living in central London - even the grubbier parts - could ever really be worse than living in south Wales...
