In Cambridge, it went from six in 2010, to 40 at the end of last year.
In Peterborough though, while the number began higher, at 21, six years later, it remains the same.

Fire investigators have this afternoon finally been able to enter a house where a man died in a suspected gas explosion.
Crews were called to a blaze at at bungalow at Back Lane in Eye, near Peterborough, on Friday morning.
Neighbours reported smelling gas and hearing a loud bang.
But investigators were unable to access the property to confirm the cause of the fire because it was structurally unsafe.
This afternoon, the fire service said it was now safe to enter the bungalow and they hoped to determine the cause as soon as possible.
Neighbour Mark Short has described how he ran into the house next door to rescue its sleeping owner.
"It looked like her roof was on fire - it was just catching - so the first thing was to get in before anything started happening. I don't even remember what it was like inside.
"She had a walking frame but she had no shoes on and there didn't look like there was any time to start hunting for shoes so we just thought we would pick her up and carry her out.
"To get in the other house was definitely a no chance because the door was melting."
