The Cleverest Place In the West Midlands

Another quest to find the town with the biggest brain has come to an end and Brierley Hill have won the Big Town Showdown!

Rob From Brierley Hill

Rob managed to beat the Big Town Showdown by getting all ten questions right in a fantastic time of just 31.4 seconds.

That meant that on the final day of the Spring 2015 season of the Big Town Showdown, he was top of our leader board. You can see the full leader board here

So, we had to surprise Rob with a something befitting of a brain like his! And it needed someone with true authority! Step forward, Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London:
