We live in the UK's 'WORST' city – it's been described as 'urban hell' but we're fighting back… we love it here | The Sun

RESIDENTS in a city sometimes branded Britain's "worst" say they love it and haters can sling their hook.

Birmingham was recently the subject of a brutal TikTok which described the West Midlands metropolis as an "urban hell".

The clip – which comes as Birmingham City Council declared bankruptcy – is part of a series on crummy cities across the world and featured mostly skyline snaps of Birmingham.

One said: "There are very old pictures – Birmingham is much better these days.

"Skyline has been heavily improved and there is some good regeneration going on."

A second lurched to its defence, adding: "Am I the only human who loves Brum? I've been here 19 years of my life, still think it's the best."

And a third added: "A lot of these pictures look completely fine."

In February, a survey by ILiveHere voted Birmingham the 14th worst place to live in Britain.

Luton took top spot, with Peterborough in second and Portsmouth in third.
