A MUSIC video called “It’s Grim in Runcorn” has appeared on the internet.
It features images of a man running through a field with the water tower and electricity pylons in the background.
The lyrics list well-known places in Runcorn with the occasional phrase “It’s grim in Runcorn”.
At one stage the vocalist groans: “Halton Lea, also known as Shopping City.”

The track is a cover version of It’s Grim Up North by the controversial 90s dance act KLF.
