 Looks like that's been corrected in the new dataset (which hasn't been
 imported yet)

 That doesn't exist in the smaller dataset we're using, but does exist in
 the full data-set.

 The dataset we're using is from https://www.geonames.org/, The smaller set
 is ~30M and has now increased from 150k to 200k cities, where as the
 larger set of ~1.5GB and covers 12million city names (plus a 6-10 alt-
 names per city on average).

 It might be worth us running a combined dataset - The smaller set, plus
 the official city names from the larger dataset (excluding the altnames)
 which would probably end up with a ~250M dataset
