‘Tis the season to be jolly. Yet according to independent research commissioned by Verisure, the festive period is a burglars’ bonanza. Two-thirds (66%) of respondents who have already experienced a home burglary, fear they’re more at risk of a repeat experience over the festive season.
Seventy percent of the UK population attribute the heightened risk of burglaries at this time of year to stockpiles of gifts and other goods. By their own estimation, consumers spend an average £300 more in December than in other months of the year (8% of respondents spend at least £800 more). A further one in five (21%) think they’re more at risk over the festive period when they go on holiday, leaving their home empty and vulnerable to intruders.
