Are you worried about domestic burglary? According to official statistics, around 2% of households are affected by burglaries every year, but the figures vary on the basis of a number of factors. For example, people living in houses are affected more often than those in flats, and people in cities more often than country dwellers. Some areas are also more likely to be affected than others. Equally, the nature of your garden and your house affects the likelihood that you will be a victim. For example, if you have a large hedge that conceals part of your property so that burglars can work uninterrupted.
