Cornwall has been revealed to be the safest place in the country for car crime.

Calstock and Gunnislake had just three cases per 10 thousand vehicles.

Dan Harrison helped do the research and has told Pirate FM that compares to 505 in Manchester: "There tend to be lots and lots of hotspots in those urban, sometimes suburban areas and then out in the country, in the rural areas, crime is a lot more sparse and you'll find insurance premiums a lot lower.

"There's theft of, theft from and vandalism. What's interesting about cars that are actually being stolen is that figure over the last ten years has fallen dramatically as the amount of cars with improved security features take up more and more of the UK's car parks."
