Recommended Posts

4. Cannock Chase

5. Corby

6. Halton

7. Kingston-upon-Hull

8. Knowsley

9. Liverpool

10. Manchester

11. Newham

15. Redditch

16. Salford

17. Sandwell

18. Sunderland

19. Swindon

20. Walsall

21. Wigan

22. Wolverhampton

All of them absolute shiteholes filled with the dregs of society (though parts of Kingston are nice). But I thought we didn't have "sub-prime" in the UK? Gordon told us it was an American thing what caused the financial crisis?? How can this be???

I think labelling towns where probably a good 10% of the UK population live "as absolute shiteholes filled with the dregs of society" deserves to get you some stick.

Where do you live that's so exclusive ?

It would be interesting to see a break down based upon property types, i'd imagine Salford, Manchester, Brum and liverpool to be choc full of flats bought off plan with speculative money.

It would also be interesting to see how much of it was irish money n all.

I'm sure grime skint wannabees remark was off the cuff, most places listed have nice areas (even just north of Bolton looks almost idylic) when i drive through.

It's an area of outstanding natural beauty in Staffordshire.

Cannock Chase

A lot of squirrels went subprime a few years ago in an attempt to buy their own trees.

Quite.

Wikipedia says of Cannock Chase: "Since 2006, the forest has been used as an open air music venue as part of the Forestry Commission nationwide Forest Tour, with acts such as The Zutons, The Feeling, Status Quo and Jools Holland playing in a forest clearing."

How this all squares with being one of the Top 10 Worst Towns For Repossesions I really have no idea.

But only 15 families have completed a process allowing them to stay as tenants in the homes they once owned.

Greater numbers have been through schemes set up in Wales and Scotland, but Northern Ireland is awaiting funding for its own version.

The 22 areas of England which the government considers as repossession hotspots include: Barking and Dagenham, Corby, Knowsley, Salford, Newham, Walsall, Redditch, Halton, Sandwell, Wolverhampton, Bolton, Reading, Swindon, Northampton, and Cannock Chase.

It also highlighted major conurbations such as: Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Sunderland, Wigan, and Kingston-upon-Hull.
