We reveal the best commuter town near Newcastle - and the answer might surprise you
Can you guess which is the best commuter town to live in around Newcastle?
We carried out a special probe to find out - and the answer might surprise you.
For our study, we assessed towns with a population of more than 10,000 people in the North East.
