Bolton has been named as one of the worst places to live in England.
The town ranked as the 6th worst place to live in the country, according to a new 2022 survey by the satirical website iLiveHere.
One person, who lives in the town and voted in the survey, said described it as "the worst possible assault on the eye and mind in Britain".
Others added: "Yes there are much worse places in Britain… but the seemingly endless rain exacerbates greatly the feeling of sadness, generalised grubbiness and pointlessness of this place."
"Some of the takeaways have reached the lofty heights of ONE star for hygiene."
"To take a phrase from a good friend of mine, “intellectual osmosis” occurs only too often should you go outside your own house – this is the process of actually feeling more stupid than you are just by looking at those around you."
Last year, the town ranked 29th, climbing 23 places and into the top 10.
The survey, which is conducted annually, took a poll of 110,172 people, who voted where the top 50 worst places to live in the country were.
