Real life Bash Street for Dundee

Bash Street Kids/Beano

The Bash Street Kids are set to have a street in Dundee named in their honour to celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Beano.

Dundee-based DC Thomson, which publishes the comic, has submitted plans to the city council to name to create a real life Bash Street.

It would be next to the city's West Marketgait where there are proposals to build a new children's soft play area.

A spokeswoman for DC Thomson said: "We're discussing with Dundee City Council the idea of naming a new street Bash Street... We think it's a fun idea."

Councillor Will Dawson welcomed the proposal to immortalise the worst behaved class in the history of British education.

He said: 'We've already got Desperate Dan and Minnie the Minx in the centre and it's good to tie in the Bash Street kids. We've got to make these historic connections."
