Revealed: The most dangerous areas for cash point muggings in the North East


Bot

The most dangerous spots for cash point muggings and thefts in the North East have been revealed.

Newcastle comes out on top with the most crimes close to an ATM over the last decade, according to recent data.

Northumbria Police recorded 207 thefts or robberies in the city, more than a hundred more crimes than second-placed Gateshead.

The figures translate to one in every 1,432 residents suffering at the hands of thieves in the last decade.

This is particularly high compared to other large cities such as Leeds (one in 5,143), Birmingham (one in 5,459) and even London (one in 6,340).

The research compiled by MoneySuperMarket through Freedom of Information requests shows Northumbria Police is the fifth busiest force for cashpoint thefts and robberies nationwide, with 801 crimes recorded in the last decade.
