“A town that spawned such world class denizens as Tommy Robinson and Britain’s ‘most dangerous prisoner’ Charles Bronson.”

Reviewers on iLiveHere have been quite unkind to Luton in their reviews, with one saying: “The town itself is not easy on the eye, it makes Slough comparable to the playboy tax exile haven of Monaco.”

Another reviewer said: “I still avoid the town centre which looks like something from Shaun of the Dead.”

Luton has also unfairly been referred to simply as “England’s toilet“.

The Bedfordshire town has been pipped to the post this year by Huddersfield, which took second position.

However, the runaway victor of worst town in England this year, getting over 25 per cent more votes than the second place Huddersfield, was Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. Aylesbury is just a 40 minute drive from third-placed Luton.

Luton is getting a big injection of cash over the next few years, receiving £20m from the Government’s Levelling Up Fund which will go towards development and regeneration.

The development will bring new homes, business and retail space as well as a community space to Luton.
