We were really surprised that Horsforth features so highly in 7th place. Who would have thought we were in the middle of so many burglary hotspots.
These poor residents are not only at a higher risk of being burgled but they could also be paying 20% more for their home insurance, according to the Daily Mail.
Our advice to any residents living in these areas is to invest in a comprehensive intruder alarm system to protect property and belongings. Use a SSAIB certified company to install the system and you could also reduce your home insurance costs (check with your insurer).
