A really good quiz, thank you It would be great if those towns more commonly known by their shorter version could be included as correct answers e.g stoke, barrow, southend

However, you could just count West Bromwich, Sutton Coldfield and Solihull as Birmingham. Count Hayes, Barking, Dagenham and Sutton as London. Also accept Leamington, Stoke.

There is great inconsistency in how you deal with towns in metropolitan areas. Sutton Coldfield is part of Birmingham City; Dagenham, Barking, Sutton, Purley, Beckenham and Hayes are within Greater London yet are noted separately while Croydon, Enfield, Bromley, Kingston-upon-Thames and possibly other highly populated towns within the Greater London county do not appear.
