The crime figures for the area which insurance companies refer to when deciding risk and therefore premiums are above average for motor vehicle thefts and contents thefts in the LS6 area.

Welcome to Leeds! :whistling:

Looking at the burglary figure it is almost double the average rate so expect your home insurance to make a significant jump also.I know it's still commonplace in remote parts of Scotland to leave your doors unlocked but it's not recommended in Leeds!

I think I would have stayed in Fife.
