Lowesmore should be No.1, and No.2 should be the appalling management, obvious inflated rent (thanks Council – don't worry about the progress of Worcester just keep those little brown envelopes changing hands) and therefore resulting slow uptake and poor quality of existing tenants in St. Martin's Quarter.

Just saying.

So answer is spelt incorrectly(typo), but you fail to use a capital letter at the beginning of a sentence and a full stop at the end. I wonder which one of the top 20 was your idea?

We're overrun by chavs. Overweight girls with their hair scraped back into a sad excuse for a pony tail, hoop earrings, tight, badly fitting clothes and fags hanging out of their mouths. Complete with pushchairs and 3 toddlers. Lads carrying a can, with their uniform of tracksuit bottoms, tattoos, white hats, scrawny build and scruffy trainers. Walking with said girls and swearing at the top of their voices so everyone can hear their conversation which is always about a) going into prison, b) coming out of prison, c) my probation officer d) the fight I had....!

Agreed! Worcester would be a much nicer place if we could get rid of the 'scum', of course there are many worse places but the state of certain people really let's Worcester down.

Seeing some of the women (and men) walking down the street with 3-4 kids in prams, fag hanging out of their mouth, loudly swearing in front of their kids really makes me cringe!!

It appears that only 20 people provided any responses, after all I can't imagine given the structure of huge sentences that any more than one person said a man with holes in his jeans walking past Asda, got more than one note!

Complaining about seagulls?! If there wasn't so much rubbish about caused by the 'chavs', overweight girls wearing clothes 2 sizes too small and their hoard of drains on the economy, buying all this unhealthy food from the ridiculous amount of fast-food establishments there wouldn't be so many seagulls.
