Hi, Can anyone help ref Nottingham & its Pop ? The widely used Worldometer site uses a link to Geonames where it picks up the City at c792k, (which is the whole County)  so this in turn ranks Nottingham in error as UK 4th biggest City. There was a figure of 246k but an update indication on the file history (line 20) is messing up a few relational studies...see below Geonames update which records in the 'history' profile of Nottingham a 2017 entry. 
Thanks for any advice in correcting something !
