Liverpool is one of the safest cities in the UK
Long live Liverpool
A report published by the government revealed Liverpool is one of the safest places in the country for a student.
You are twice as likely to be a victim of a violent attack in London than in Merseyside. A statistic that will help you sleep soundly at night, or wander aimlessly (but safely) around Concert Square at 3am.
Don’t worry about your precious iPad and Macbook in your £60pw Smithdown house, because figures show our Manc rivals are 20 per cent more likely to be burgled – the same statistic goes for London.
The figures, show offences across all of England’s police forces and are disclosed by the government in response to a Parliamentary Question by Tory MP Philip Hollobone.
Brummies experience 10 per cent more home break-ins per person and 50 per cent more car crime than we do.
Be grateful we don’t live in Leeds or Sheffield, because they have a 50 per cent bigger chance of being broken into than we are.
Nursing second year Catherine hopes these new figures help bust the myth that Liverpool is dangerous: “I kept being told that when I was about to leave my home town of Birmingham that I’ll constantly be shoplifted, attacked and everything when I move to Liverpool.
“It’s nice to prove to them what I’ve always thought – Liverpool is a safe, wonderful place for a student to call home.”
Penny, a student who comes from the heart of Northern Ireland, was delighted to hear the news: “I can now continue my dealing around town safe in the knowledge that my house won’t be burgled. Yay.”
