Kent streets ahead for romance

Love is in the air in Kent as the county has more miles of romantically-named streets than anywhere else in Britain.

Motorists can expect to tackle anything from Love Lane to Darling Avenue, according to research from map experts TomTom.

Other areas in the south of England were also highly ranked, including Essex, Cornwall and Suffolk, which all had a high number of lovingly named streets.

In Kent there are 15.6 miles of romantically-named roads, while there are 14 miles in London and eight in Cornwall.

A TomTom spokesman said: "Kent is clearly the county to head for if you are a romantically inclined motorist.

"But we would urge lovers not to take their eye off the road ahead."

Motorists in the north of England can also rest assured they will be able to tackle seven miles of romantic roads in Lancashire.
