Erith-Dagenham Suicide Pact

Comedian Linda Smith has died, aged 48. She was from Erith, home of picturesquely pointless cycle lanes.

I mention Erith because Linda Smith once described it as being too pathetic to be twinned with anywhere, though it was (she said) in a suicide pact with Dagenham.

Also on the theme of Erith, it ran a competition once to find a name for its new leisure centre; the winning entry was 'Erith Leisure Centre'.
