Heston Services Eastbound has been named as the worst in England, scoring a customer satisfaction rating of just 62% in a survey by watchdog Transport Focus.

The west London site will be 50 years old next year and is the final rest stop for motorists driving to the capital on the M4.

Heston has been subject to a number of scathing Google reviews in recent months.

One described it as "dirty, old and tired", while another said it was the "worst motorway services I've ever been to" with toilets that are "pretty rank".

Another reviewer advised drivers: "Keep going you are nearly in London."

The report found that the best stopping off point in England is Reading Services Westbound, which earned a score of 100%.
