Please could the BN reporters complete this quiz too as it's amazing how little they seemingly know of the geography of Bolton - would be hard for a real Boltonian to place Tonge Moor Rd in Tonge Fold as has been done before?
Sorry, sadly remote reporting using post codes to place incidents just don't end up as 'real' journalism.
