Recent statistics reveal that housebreaking insurance claims across Edinburgh remain the highest in Scotland. The top five hotspots and 11 of the worst 20 areas are all in the Lothians, according to analysis from price comparison website MoneySuperMarket.

The top Edinburgh hotspots are:

2- EH4 Dean Village
3- EH15 Portobello and Duddingston
4- EH9 City centre, Marchmont and Grange, Blackford, Minto Street, Causewayside

Experience shows that a typical burglary could see criminals stealing keys from a home and driving off in expensive cars that were parked in the driveway of the property.

Councillor Joan Griffiths, community safety leader at the city council was quoted as saying:
“The public have a crucial role to play in helping us prevent break-ins by taking appropriate security measures around their homes, outbuildings and business premises and by reporting any suspicious activity they witness around the properties of their families, friends and neighbours.”
