THE CITY OF HULL'S PORT and industrial facilities, together with its proximity to mainland Europe led to widespread damage by bombing raids during the Second World War. Hull had 95% of houses damaged or destroyed, making it the most severely bombed British city or town, apart from London, during the Second World War. As recently as 2006 researchers have found documents in the local archives that suggest an unexploded wartime bomb might be buried beneath a major new redevelopment, The Boom.

ACCORDING TO ONE OF HULL'S MANY fishing superstitions, the colour green is considered unlucky. Veteran trawlermen would rip off any green scarves or hats worn by young deck-hands unfamiliar in local lore. The fear being that green would be followed by black. This superstition continues to influence Hull to this day. There are few green cars on the streets of Hull, and the city council avoids using the colour.
