Derry named best town in Britain

Londonderry has been named as the Best Town in Britain after it secured first place at the Urbanism Awards, which will now be located in the city next year.

The award, which recognises the most improved urban environment throughout the UK, was handed out by the Academy of Urbanism after assessment visits earlier this year.

Welcoming the award, deputy mayor of Derry Kevin Campbell, said: “All the work that has been done regenerating the city is paying off.”
