Burglars hit home
MORE than one in 10 victims of burglary move home in the months after being targeted.
Almost three million homes in the UK have been broken into in the past year, often leaving a serious psychological impact on householders.
Research by Lloyds Home Insurance reveals 12% of Brits moved after being burgled.
A third of victims also reported suffering sleep problems in the wake of their home being broken into.
Burglars’ most common method of entry was through a window. Doors came next, while 13% tampered with the locks.
Adam Powell of home insurance provider Policy Expert said: “Burglary doesn’t just impact us financially, but takes a huge toll psychologically and emotionally.”
