Newport Pagnell South voted one of the worst services in the country

    The Milton Keynes services came 108th out of 111, making it the fourth worst motorway services in the entire country.

    Heading on a staycation this summer? You might be spending a lot of time on the motorway; you won't want to stop too close to home!

    Travel watchdog Transport Focus has asked customers for their views on the service stations across the country and the two closest to MK are some of the worst.

    The customers were asked on factors such as staffing, food and toilet facilities.

    The bottom four included the two closest to Milton Keynes.

    • 108. Newport Pagnell South - M1 in Buckinghamshire (Welcome Break)
    • 109. Southwaite Northbound - M6 in Cumbria (Moto)
    • 110. Toddington Southbound - M1 in Bedfordshire (Moto)
    • 111. Thurrock - M25 in Essex (Moto)

    The good news is that this list seems to have an affect. Last years' second-bottom services, Stafford Soutbound, has now become the second-best!

    So maybe a bright future for Toddington.

    Here's the five best in case you're travelling this summer:

    • 1. Norton Canes - M6 Toll in Staffordshire (operated by Roadchef)
    • 2. Stafford Southbound - M6 in Staffordshire (Roadchef)
    • 3. Wetherby - A1(M) in Yorkshire (Moto)
    • 4. Hilton Park Southbound - M6 in Staffordshire (Moto)
    • 5. Corley Southbound - M6 in Warwickshire (Welcome Break)
