Muswell Hill, East Finchley and Edmonton amongst London’s most burgled areas

Do you live in one of London’s burglary hotspots?

According to Money Supermarket there are 12 London postcodes in the top 20 most burgled areas in the country.

You may be surprised to learn that it is often some of London’s most desirable areas that are targeted.

Thieves are targeting some of London’s more affluent areas in the hope of richer rewards.

Muswell Hill, London N10 is the third most burgled area, East Finchley, London N2 is the fifth and Edmonton, London N18 is the eighth.

Thieves also look for quiet areas where there is a low risk of being caught in the act.  Areas were people are out at work all day and there are lots of empty properties and those with low security.
