Most Brits fear robbery

Written by:

Some 26 million Brits fear for their safety and worry about crime, Legal & General’s Safety Uncovered Index has revealed.

The research found that 55% of people have worried about crime in the last three months, and of these, nearly half, (49%) were concerned because they had been victims of crime or witnessed it first hand.

Elaine Parkes, Technical Services Manager at Legal & General Insurance said: “Our study offers an insight into people’s perceptions of safety in the UK and is very revealing when over half have worried about crime in the last three months. It’s vitally important that people take basic safety measures, such as avoiding walking home alone at night, and keeping valuables out of sight. These examples are simple, but effective ways to improve personal safety and at the same time help to protect belongings.

“We would urge everyone to think about how they may protect themselves and their belongings to avoid being an unfortunate victim of crime.”
