Crime Map of England & Wales 2020 aka Stay Away From Yorkshire & Wales To Avoid Being Robbed Or Raped.

Interesting stats from the just released Crime Map of England in Wales which records crime per 1000 of the population of the area.

Crime across England and Wales dropped five per cent in the last year, according to the latest Home Office figures from June 2019 to June 2020.

Offences plummeted during the first Covid lockdown in March and April, with burglaries, sex offences and thefts down across the country.

Thefts plunged by 15 per cent and robbery fell by 10 per cent.

Criminal damage was down eight per cent and sex offences decreased by seven per cent.

But the UK's murder rate rose by nine per cent year-on-year and violent crime was up three per cent overall with a big increase in domestic violence.

Cleveland tops Britain's blacklist and replaces West Yorkshire as the most dangerous region in the country, with sky-high rates of violent crime and criminal damage.

The north-east county - which includes towns such as Middlesbrough, Hartlepool and Redcar - suffers crime rate more than double that of neighbours North Yorkshire.

The list of crime hotspots is dominated by the north of England, with West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Durham and Humberside making up the top five.

North Yorkshire is the safest place to live in England and Wales, with the lowest rates of violent offences and among the best burglary and robbery stats.

Overall, if you live in Cleveland and West Yorkshire you are most likely to be a victim of crime.

London - aka Met Police area tops out for robbery - no surprise there.

West & South Yorkshire or bandit country as we in North Yorkshire call it. They come for a day by the sea and crime rockets, same goes for coaches down from Middlesbrough.
 
The problem with crime statistics is that they show what is reported and accepted by police. Not what really happens. In my locality people don't like to report thefts and criminal damage as the police are not likely to solve the crime and they fear that the cost of insurance will go up.

Statistics are like a bikini. What is revealed is interesting but what is hidden is vital.
 
And another statistic, LLandudno is the drink driving capital of the UK, probably because so many Scousers and chavs from Chester descend on there for a piss up

Do you mind! North Wales only, proving the depravity of Gogs!

We used to have activity down on the M1 corridor towards London. Gangs used to come down from Liverpool, sometimes Manchester, in rented rather than nicked (so they would not attract attention) vans, the large ones, and also curtain-siders.

They would then cruise the service stations between midnight and sparrow fart. Sometimes they would leave dickers at service stations, other times just cruise the service station and try to ping a driver going in for breakfast.

They would break into a wagon and nick what they could and scarper. If they were using a curtain sider they would pull up next to another curtain sider, slide back their curtain and cut through the target vehicles curtain, and unload at leisure.

I used to love nights, many a night we had a crew of scousers banged up. A camp chair and a set of binos on the roof of a service station makes for a wonderful OP over a well lit vehicle park.

Stats dont lie, well they sort of but its true. Police in town only hit the seafront when the wessies are in town.
That's the power of otherness.

I'm always suspicious of this kind of data as I know from experience that people in rural areas often don't bother reporting crime as the police either won't or can't attend.

True but population density will trump out few country folk not reporting something.

Meaningless without population density and demographics.

IIRC this happened a few years back in Hampshire, specifically Portsmouth. The driver was the night-time crime in and around Guildhall Square when the RN and all the students are in town. So you end up with headlines like this:
Alarming, eh?
Reader beware: the Echo is Southampton based, and may show Portsmouth in a bad light. Or may be more fearless than the local paper.
One should always take these stats with a pinch of salt anyway, as some forces record crime better than others.

Back in the day Derby Road, St Marys was the place not to be seen.
