Luton is a borough, unitary authority area and large town found within the ceremonial county of Bedfordshire in central England.

Claims To Fame For Luton
Two of the most notable sources of the notoriety of the town of Luton are the interlinked connections with the hat making industry and with football. In terms of hat making, the town was once an absolute global leader in that regard and was renowned for its position at the top of that industry.
Such was Luton’s fame for hat making in fact, that the also once nationally renowned football team that calls the town home came to be known as ‘the Hatters’, a nickname which sustains today. Luton Town Football Club were once an established top division side in England and despite having dropped through the leagues in recent times, is still a club viewed fondly by those who understand the history of the game.
Modern Day Luton
It is fair to say that the aforementioned claims to fame for the Bedfordshire town are more rooted in the past than the present, so what can be said about modern day Luton?
Luton today, according to the latest available census data, has a total population of approximately 205,000 residents but is also part of a larger urban area which is home to closer to 260,000. This makes the town an undoubtedly significant centre of population which also reveals that in Luton compensation claims can also be comparatively common.
Luton Compensation Claims
The reason why the higher level of population in the town inexorably means that in Luton compensation claims are more common, is simply due to the fact that areas of greater population tend to play host to a higher number of accidents and injuries.
What this means for residents of the town is that it is comparatively more likely that Luton compensation claims could be a part of their future, and if that is the case then they will want to know who to contact for assistance.
