Grim outlook for Grimsby as Sacha Baron Cohen sets comedy in town

Lincolnshire town shown as litter strewn, dilapidated and full of beer-swilling children fears it will suffer as Staines has

The last time Sacha Baron Cohen chose to set his comedy in a British town, it suffered so many years of ridicule the place eventually changed its name.

But now the residents of Grimsby fear their town will suffer the same fate as Staines, now Staines-upon-Thames, as their town is depicted as litter strewn, dilapidated and full of beer-swilling children in the comedian’s latest film.
