Kevin Pratt, an insurance expert for moneysupermarket, has spoken to Granada Reports about why Chorlton is so badly hit by burglars.
He said Chorlton might be perceived as 'rich pickings', because it is a 'nice part of the world'.
The Greater Manchester Police and Crime Commissioner, Tony Lloyd, has said a report which names Chorlton-cum-Hardy as the UK's most burgled postcode, is not an accurate description of the Manchester suburb.
He said burglary is a major issue for Greater Manchester Police, not just in Chorlton, but in the entire area.
Manchester has the top burglary hotspot in the UK.
According to figures from a leading insurance firm, people living in Chorlton and the M21 postcode are most likely to have been hit with more than 45 claims per thousand people.
