Metropolitan/City of London Police 

The HonestJohn.co.uk Car Crime Census includes data from both the Metropolitan and City of London Police forces.

As you would expect from city that's home to eight million people, car crime is widespread with a number of large hotspots. In fact, London's average crime rate exceeds the national average by more than 100 per cent, with 258 offences per 10,000 registered cars.

The biggest crime hotspot is found in EC2, which covers the north eastern corner of the capital, spanning Moorgate, Finsbury Circus and Liverpool Street. EC2 recorded 1228 car crime per 10,000 registered cars, although it’s worth pointing out that 60,000 vehicles visit central London every day and EC2 is located at the very hub of this influx, with both the A10 and A11 concluding within its boundaries.

Covent Garden’s WC2 also experienced a huge hike in car crime, with 1169 offences per 10,000 cars, while the neighbouring WC1 to the north recorded 1159 comparable incidents.

Theft from a motor vehicle accounts for 36 per cent of all car crime, while three out of 10 offences involve the theft of a vehicle. Criminal damage makes up 29 per cent of crimes.

Crime rates only decline as you travel into the outer suburbs of London and the safest district is in Uxbridge, with its UB11 postcode recording 68 offences per 10,000 registered cars. West Wickham was the second safest area, with 75 comparable offences taking place.
