21 Cities And Towns To Move Away From In The UK


3. Nottingham

According to the Office for National Statistics, some of the poorest residents of England live in Nottingham where income is low and residents have the tiniest amount of disposable income in the entire country.

That means that people in Nottingham can’t afford to go out and have fun because they’re tied to a low-wage job. With tumbling living standards and average household income reaching only £10,834, the residents of Nottingham feel poverty every single day.

Unfortunately, many residents have turned to crime over the last several years, and the government has responded with additional CCTV cameras for taxicabs to keep drivers and passengers safe on the road. Terrible crimes, like the beating of a 64-year-old man and his wife, as covered by The BBC News, have also shaken residents in recent months, but people have even had to put up with environmental problems, in addition to violent crime.

Record levels of air pollution have shown up in many areas in the UK, and the River Trent in Nottingham stands as one of the most polluted areas of the country.
