I've heard of them, but I've never needed to visit either. Both have quite grim sounding names.

Well Grimsby used to be a massive fishing port ( biggest in the world in 1950), but due to the EU and weak UK governments it is now home to just 5 fishing boats. Basically it’s well named, with the emphasis on Grim.
Scunthorpe used to be a steel town but most of that is gone due to pathetic governments of both parties. It’s probably best known from the saying “ if Tetley put the T in Britain, who put the c•nt in Scunthorpe ?
Both places have underachieving professional football teams.

I always think of Grimsby as a coastal town, therefore not part of a land-based area such as East Midlands, no matter what borders are made by politicians.
