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.
