WITH more of us working from home during the pandemic, ours cars have spent more time than ever parked up in Romsey.

As society starts to unlock again, people will start to explore different parts of the county to visit loved ones, have a long-awaited haircut and visit their favourite pub.

But how do you know the safest streets to park in if you're new to an area?

A tool created by Co-op Insurance has revealed the number of vehicle crimes in any area - and what roads it is happening in the most.

How does the tool work?

The interactive map uses data published by the Home Office covering July 2020 to December 2020.

Users can search crime rates in their area by entering a postcode or location into the search bar.

The results are displayed in three coloured circles: red indicates an area that has had six or more incidents, orange shows streets that have seen three to five car crimes and yellow means there have been between zero and two incidents.

If you're planning on travelling further afield, the data spans across England and Wales.

However, data is currently unavailable for Scotland.
