Rowan Atkinson’s Birthplace Is Quite Literally A Porn Hub

The quiet town of Consett in County Durham has a deep and dirty secret.

At one time the small town of Consett in County Durham was a hub of industry, with steel-making the main source of income for many of its residents.

In 2016, however, it’s a different story with this quiet cosy town fostering a very different kind of industry: porn.

According to a report from Reuters, it has been revealed that Consett is actually home to the directors of any number of porn websites.

That’s right, the company directors of websites like amateurmilftown.com and naughtytrannyfun.com apparently reside in the birthplace of Rowan Atkinson, something the artist formerly known as Mr Bean must be thrilled about.

But before Johnny English gets too upset, it must be noted that in the majority don’t actually live there.

Instead, many local residents have simply been paid by these companies to allow their addresses to be used for forwarding mail to, though in the majority of cases they didn’t realise what the hell was going on.

All told, some 420 residents signed up to the scheme, with websites related to everything from adult entertainment to poker and even diet pills utilising the service which was set up by Simon Dowson to help the companies trade in Europe.

Not everyone is happy though, including John Mawson and his wife Sandra.

They signed up to run 15 shell companies under the scheme at £50 a pop but were left shocked when it was revealed that one happened to be a company called Thunder Flash Entertainment who are involved in hardcore porn.

Still, if this doesn’t boost tourism to the region then nothing will.
