If we were to extend this to airport localities, I would offer Lulsgate Bottom, as a malady brought on by eating too many budget airline curries.

Lulsgate Bottom? The future moniker for Nailsea and Backwell Station if it's to be part of the proposed airport rail link?

I used to think Brightside was inappropriate for the gloomiest, most heavily industrialised part of Sheffield.

A bit like Coatbridge Sunnyside.

From the Daily Record

Quote
Locals say a 13-year-old boy was set upon by a gang of older teenagers at Sunnyside railway station which police later sealed off.

A young man taken to hospital after an incident in Coatbridge is believed to have been attacked by a group of youths.

Local sources have said the victim is aged 13 and was left in a serious condition when he was set upon near the town’s Sunnyside railway station.

Police said they were called after the boy was found “unconscious”.

A massive cordon has been thrown around the area which centres on Gartsherrie Road at Lamberton’s Engineering.

ScotRail were forced to stop services at the station as there was no access for passengers due to the police cordon.

A local businessman said: “At about 4.30pm there were three males who attacked a 13-year-old boy.

“They quite severely beat him up.

“They were older than the boy, maybe 16 or 17.

“I’ve heard this from onlookers and some of the staff from the train who were clearing up at the time.

“The boys had just come off the train.

An interesting town is Coatbridge ... this popped up on my news feed a few minutes ago. Coatbridge is one of those unlikely places I spend quite a bit of time ...

And now I'm reminded of "The Bristol Song" written by Adge Cutler of Wurzels fame. Amongst thelines I can remember:

There's no food in the Feeder, you'll be out of luck
And you won't find hens in Henbury, and all The Downs is up.

Perhaps station related:

And all the girls in Horfield - are quite respectable really...

Don't be silly; Coatbridge is nowhere near Bury St Edmunds!

Tuesday had come down through Dundrum and Foster Avenue, brine-fresh from sea-travel, a corn-yellow sun-drench that called forth the bees at an incustomary hour to their bumbling.
