Hemel Hempstead has been crowned the ugliest town in an online vote that the town won’t be shouting about.
The Dacorum town beat Luton to the top place in the ‘not very scientific’ poll by the people behind the Crap Towns publications.
A total of 785 votes were cast to put the new town in top position, coming in second was Luton – which had previously been the front-runner – with 592 and Slough ranked third with 352.
More than 3,000 people went online to vote over a two week period.
It comes as borough chiefs are promoting the first stages of an overhaul of Hemel Hempstead with the introduction of a new major supermarket and state of the art college campus.
Now the hunt is on to pinpoint the dullest town – but Hemel Hempstead is not included.
