Ilford has been revealed as the UK’s car theft hot spot, according to new research.

MoneySuperMarket collated data based on the number of car thefts per 1000 insurance quotes in each postcode area.

IG – which covers most of Redbridge, Barking, and parts of Epping Forest – had 16.1 thefts per 1000 quotes.

RM, which covers Havering, Dagenham, Chadwell Heath, and parts of Thurrock, had 15.4 per 1000.

East London’s E postcode came in ninth across the UK, with 8.5 thefts per 1000.

Rachel Wait, at MoneySuperMarket, said: “When it comes to car thieves, London is clearly the worst area for offences, with postcodes from the capital taking the top two spots – and featuring three times in the top 10.”

“Having the right level of insurance is key to minimising any cost, should your car get stolen. However, prevention is always better than cure. There are simple steps – like parking your car off the road and not leaving high value items on display – that can go some way towards preventing theft.

“Protecting your no claims discount will prevent any nasty hikes to your premium. If you do have to make a claim after a theft, make sure you shop around at your next renewal. Moving to a different insurer could save you up to £245 on your annual bills.”
