Bangor has one of the lowest burglary rates in the UK, according to new research.

Analysis by the price comparison site MoneySuperMarket found that the university town, along with postcodes in Dumfries and and Lochee in Scotland, are among the areas with the lowest proportion of burglary claims across the country.

Meanwhile the UK's worst burglary hotspots include Dagenham, the RM8 postcode in east London and Grants Hill, also in London.

"Burglars often target urban areas where there's more hustle and bustle and so less risk of being caught, but not surprisingly they also follow the money, which is why affluent areas such as Teddington and Temple Newsam in West Yorkshire appearing in the top 20 claims hotspots."
