The latest available police figures for burglary incidents in the Cheshire West region detail a total of 1,248 property break-ins in the year to August 2018 with a further 2.432 incidents of criminal damage or arson reported to the police.
In neighbouring Cheshire East, the figures for burglary and criminal damage are comparable to 1,322 recorded cases of burglary to homes and businesses and 2,782 cases of criminal damage or arson.
That's many incidents of crime and damage to property occurring every day across the regions of Cheshire West and Cheshire East. These statistics matter when it comes to crime surveys but, If it is you or your family that has suffered a property break-in or house burglary, the latest figures will hardly be any comfort.
