THE lat­est crime sta­tis­tics show that the Lon­don Bor­ough of Hilling­don suf­fered a whop­ping 152 bur­glar­ies in one month.

Fig­ures for April 2017 – the most re­cent avail­able – re­veal that there was on av­er­age at least one bur­glary ev­ery day some­where in the bor­ough.

But the bur­glar­ies were not spread out evenly across Hilling­don and our research shows there are “hotspots” in the bor­ough.

It’s very good news if you live in Hare­field how­ever – there was not one recorded bur­glary for the month of April 2017.

Else­where in the bor­ough showed a dif­fer­ent pic­ture.

We’ve rounded up the top 10 bur­glary neigh­bour­hoods in Hilling­don, cour­tesy of the Home Of­fice.
