Sam Jordison and Dan Kieran will this week unleash Crap Towns Returns, a third enthusiastic compendium of Britain's worst towns as voted for by visitors to the pair's Crap Towns website .

Having collected the voters' tales of "woe, misery and despair", the brains behind the Crap Towns series have updated their list and in pole position this year is none other than London.

The sprawling metropolis has snatched the much-coveted title from former heavywieght Hull, rated number one Crap Town in the UK for the last decade.

London shot all the way to the top of the 50-strong list by nominations for its high house prices, City bankers and drab suburbs. The city is "a must for all fans of vomit, paranoid schizophrenics and R&B played through tinny mobile phone speakers".
