HUDDERSFIELD has dropped five places down the TV licence dodgers' 2004 northern League of Shame.
But at 12th position it is still one of the worst offenders in Yorkshire.
The annual League exposes the towns and cities where TV Licensing has caught high numbers of licence evaders.
A total of 107,590 evaders were caught throughout the North - enough to fill the Alfred McAlpine Stadium four times over.
Nationwide, 399,918 licence evaders were netted over the last 12 months.
Deborah Copeland, spokesperson for TV Licensing in the North commented: "This is probably the only league where being relegated is actually good news.
"However, licence dodgers have still let the side down and are the biggest losers, as they face stiff penalties if caught without a valid TV licence.
"Those who are caught risk an appearance in court, a fine of up to £1,000, and court costs.
"In addition to this, they still need to pay £121 for a licence."
