THE Warrington streets with the most reported crimes in December can now be revealed.

Monthly data released by the Home Office includes the number of crimes reported on each street in the town.

The newest information available is from December, which was released recently.

As per the figures released on – which is run by the Home Office – it has been revealed that just over 1,100 crimes were reported across the town in December.

There is a discrepancy with the figures due to the fact that the police log ‘reported crimes’, which means that some crimes that went unreported will not be in the figures.

Equally, some crimes may have been reported more than once.

According to the figures, there were 1,107 crimes in December, which is a decrease of 188 from November, when reports stood at 1,295.

Across Warrington, the streets with the most crimes reported in December were:

• Bridge Foot – 18

• Hollins Lane – 14

• Hillock Lane – 11

• Church Street – 9

• Marshall Road – 8

• Hamnett Court – 8

• Patten Lane – 7

• St Austins Lane – 6

• Tilley Street – 6

• Town Hill – 6

• Bridgeport Mews – 6

In terms of crimes reported from public areas, December’s figures were as follows:

• Shopping area – 44

• Supermarket – 39

• Nightclub – 33

• Parking area – 27

• Petrol station – 16

• Park/open space – 14

• Hospital – 9

• Prison – 6

• Police station – 5

• Sports/recreation area – 5

Every category of reported crime saw decreases from November to December, or at worst remained the same.

Violent and sexual offences – the highest category – fell from 562 to 545, with the next highest, anti-social behaviour, dropping from 139 to 105.

The lowest categories were robbery (five), theft from a person (six), bicycle theft (six) and possession of weapons (eight).

In terms of the outcomes of these reports, 512 remain under investigation, according to the data, while 91 are awaiting action, but 360 resulted in no prosecution, for reasons such as no suspect being identified, being unable to prosecute a suspect and further action not being in the public interest.

All information is taken from and is accurate at the time of writing.
