Manchester is no longer the worst place in the UK for burglaries, new research shows.


In an annual survey on burglary hotspots, those living in and around London are revealed to be the most prone to burglaries with 14 out of the top most burgled postcodes found in Greater London.

This year’s top spot is taken by Dagenham in east London knocking last year’s leader, Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester down to third place.

The listings were compiled by insurance website MoneySupermarket, with the rankings based on the rate of burglary claims per 1,000 insurance quotes.

A spokesman from MoneySuperMarket said: “The research reveals Dagenham is the UK’s top burglary hotspot, with a rate of 55 out of every 1,000 insurance quotes having made a claim in the past two years.”

“Burglars often target urban areas where there’s more hustle and bustle and so less risk of being caught.”

“But not surprisingly they also follow the money, which is why affluent areas such as Teddington in the borough of Richmond and Temple Newsam in West Yorkshire appear in the top 20 claim hotspots.”

The 20 postcodes with the least number of burglary claims in 2014 include Suffolk, Cumbria and Dumfries in Scotland.

Here is the 20 worst list in full:
