english soap opera 'east enders' discourages over 50% of travellers from visiting East End of London - because they fear to meet characters and situations similar to those depicted in this soap (rudeness, abuse, ugliness, swearing etc...).

I know travellers who were completely turn off from coming to London because of such television images and asking me whether London is safe.

Looks like boycotting soaps and television helps to travel around the world more.

Please don't refer to people that were turned off from going to the East End because of a soap opera as "travellers".

How do you know them massageuk, are they your friends? Would they not go to New York because tall buildings fall down?

Hilarious! And I don't know about you, but I won't go to parts of the US in case a coyote with some Acme TNT blows me up while I'm travelling down the road.

ok, maybe they are more 'tourists' than 'travellers or people who have never been anywhere abroad and base their info on whatever sources they have.

the statistics comes from the study recently conducted on tourists in London

Well no one asked me for my opinion, but for what it's worth, I wouldn't go to the East End in case I bumped into a guy named Jack.
