It's probably bigger and/or more important than Newport (Gwent), that's a city. But then it's not dominated by chavs AFAIK either.

I would have called it a city, never knew it was a town!

The MB of Doncaster is the 19th biggest district by population (covers Doncaster, Mexborough, Conisbrough, Thorne and Finningley) in England.

286,866 were resident in Doncaster TOWN ONLY according to the 2001 census.

It is the 15th largest population centre in the UK outside London. Sadly I can't find figures for population by town anywhere.

I always thought Huddersfield was one of the biggest towns.... but after a quick click on google I found Northampton claiming as the biggest town...?
