More burglaries are being reported to Norfolk police with 4,000 last year.

But where are the most burglaries and how good are police at solving them?

We looked at every burglary reported to Norfolk and Suffolk Police from March 2015 to February 2018, which are recorded on the police.uk website.

The figures do not include every burglary which has taken place and police warned about looking at the figures in isolation.

But they do give the outcome and location of almost 13,000 break-ins in Norfolk.

The figures showed big differences between small neighbourhoods in the burglary rate and detection rate.

Scroll down to the map covering your council area and zoom in to see what happened to burglaries reported on your street.

The areas with the highest burglary rates are also the neighbourhoods where burglars are least likely to get away with their crimes.

Areas with the lowest burglary rates tend to have the highest percentage of failed investigations.

•The areas with the five highest burglary rates are:

•Yarmouth - Nelson ward: 66pc (of investigations ended with no suspect found), Burglary rate per person: 0.06

•Norwich - Mancroft (city centre): 62pc, 0.05

•Yarmouth - Central & Northgate: 56pc, 0.037

•Norwich - Thorpe Hamlet: 65pc, 0.03

•Lynn - St Margarets: 67pc, 0.03

•The areas with the five lowest burglary rates

•Broadland: 81pc, 0.007

•Eaton: 79pc, 0.007

•Sprowston: 72pc, 0.007

•Thorpe St Andrew: 77pc, 0.006

•Drayton: 87pc, 0.005

All crime data on the police.uk website is provided by police forces but it does not replace national figures published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

The ONS latest figures showed a 9pc increase nationally in burglaries in 2017 and a 6pc increase in Norfolk and Suffolk.
