The number of burglaries reported in Rainham and Wennington in November was more than double that of the 2013 figure, crime stats show.

Twenty one reports were made of burglary in the ward, compared to 10 the previous year – due to the crimewave that hit the south of Havering, as reported by the Recorder last month.

The statistics are published on a crime map, where residents can see the location of all reported crimes.

There was, however, a decline in the number of reports year on year for October, from 13 to 10.

Violence and sexual offences reported also doubled in November, from 11 to 22.
