The top 20 burglary hotspots

 

Here are the top 20 postcodes where homeowners are most likely to have claimed on home insurance for burglary, followed by the top 20 least likely.

MoneySupermarket.com analysed 3.49 million applications for home insurance quotes made between December 2011 and the end of November 2012.

They looked at the number of users who said they had made a claim for burglary at their current address in the past two years.

The number of claims made per 1,000 enquiries was then calculated, to allow areas to be compared.
