Kingston upon Hull, more commonly known as Hull, is a city and unitary authority area in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Role in Coronation StreetEdit

Jamie Baldwin was sent to the city on a delivery run in June 2005 by his father Danny who was jealous of his relationship with Leanne Battersby and wanted to keep them apart.

Exactly ten years later, Jenny Bradley fled there with youngster Jack Webster after she had kidnapped him in Weatherfield. Jenny had undergone a mental breakdown following the death of her own son Tom Midgeley two years previously and took Jack in the hope that he would prove to be a substitute. When it became clear that even the presence of the little boy provided no relief to her, Jenny rang Rita Tanner and she rushed across the Pennines with Kevin and Sophie Webster. Jack was rescued and Jenny broke down before being taken away by the police.

Hull was the birthplace of two regular members of the Coronation Street cast; Margot Bryant on 8th March 1897, and Maureen Lipman on 10th May 1946.
