Research has shown that theft of a car and break-ins happen across the country and there is no one particular hotspot for thieves.
The top five locations where your car is likely to be stolen are: Aberdeenshire, West Midlands, Cheshire, Manchester and Liverpool.
Yet it appears that thieves looking to break in and steal valuable as opposed to the car itself generally operate in city centres, with Belgravia, London at number one and Newcastle City Centre following close behind.
So no matter where you park up, ensure you car is locked, windows are shut, you are parked in a well lit area and never leave any valuables on show as most thieves are opportunists.
