Homes in Waltham Forest are some of the most likely to be burgled in London, according to rent advisors.

This week, Metropolitan Police figures for burglary were analysed for all London boroughs by website Rentonomy.

They found more burglaries were reported in Croydon, Waltham Forest, Islington and Marylebone than anywhere else in London.

Croydon had the most break-ins, although all had three times more than the London average.

An ‘implied correlation’ between population density and burglaries was found during research.

The figures relate to the 12 month period between March 2013 and March 2014.

According to the end of year figures released for Waltham Forest, the number of burglaries in the borough has decreased.
