Nottingham has levels of burglary that are are 12% higher than the second highest area for burglary in the country which is London.

Nottingham and London are followed by Bristol (50.7 per cent), Stockport (49.8 per cent) and Leeds (46.3 per cent) - the percentages are the rates above the national average.

Nottingham was named the most dangerous City in England by the think tank 'Reform' two years ago. Police have claimed that they have had crime on the turn but this latest report will anger citizens of Nottingham.

The safest place in Britain in terms of burglaries is Guildford, which has a rate of burglary of 82% below the national average.
