STREATHAM'S STREET SHAME

  • Comment

Britain's worst street is Streatham High Road in London, according to a poll carried out by CABE and BBC Radio 4's Today programme.Listeners to the programme and voters on the online 'Streets of Shame'poll hit out at Streatham's main traffic junction, run-down shop fronts, broken lighting and 'an ever growing number of police signs advertising the occurrence of violent crime'.Other streets shortlisted were Cornmarket Street in Oxford, Drake Circus in Plymouth, Maid Marion Way in Nottingham and Leatherhead High Street in Surrey.

Newcastle's Grey Street was voted the UK's best street.
