London's burglary hotspots are not unpleasant places to live despite the statistics, the company behind the findings has said.
London dominates the list with 12 postcodes in the top 20 burglary hotspots in the UK.
"While the M21 postal district in Manchester is the country's most notorious burglary claim hotspot, it is London that dominates the top 20 rankings," Kevin Pratt from MoneySupermarket.com said.
"But just because somewhere is named a claim hotspot, it doesn't actually mean the area in question is not a nice place to live.
"Thieves often target areas with wealthy residents and desirable properties where the rewards are potentially greater or quieter areas where they think there is less risk of being caught red-handed."
The top 20 burglary hotspots in the UK have been revealed, with 12 London postcodes in the list.
According to insurance claim figures, people living in the M21 postcode of Manchester are most likely to have been hit, with 45.2 claims per thousand people.
However, Herne Hill and Tulse Hill in SE24 in London were close behind with 41.8, and Muswell Hill in N10 chalked up 40.9.
The figures came from 3.1 million home insurance quotes submitted to website MoneySupermarket.com over the course of a year.
The top 20 were derived from the areas where the most people reported having made previous claims for burglary, per thousand people.
