It certainly had a few violent crack head retards living there too a few years back.

I hope the growing local wind turbine industry brings some sustained growth to the local economy.

It's been a town of despair for decades, after systemic over-fishing, plus skippers selling their quotas as soon as they could, precipitated the collapse of what had been its main employer, fishing. Like Swansea, it could be a graveyard of ambition. I was glad to get out aged 18 - the first in my family to do so in several generations. It has ranked highly for poor jobs and poor education, for a long time, and tends to be either first or second in England, of towns with the lowest proportion of graduates. In one poll of the worst places to live in the UK, it got more votes than all the other entrants put together.

It's had a bit of a revival, in its own way, in the last 20 years, thanks to the Single Market bringing lots of trade through, and then additionally the offshore wind industry (driven in part by EU rules on renewable energy). Orsted's 350 decent jobs are a lot for a town of 100,000 people where very few jobs required much formal education.

It must be challenging for Orsted in Grimsby right now - a Danish company in an extremely Brexity town. I wonder whether that's partly their motivation for producing this video.

At least the video captured the most iconic part of Grimsby.  Steel's fish and chips shame its actually in Cleethorpes.
