Uninsured victims of burglary are facing an annual bill of £200m, according to research from Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks. One in four households have no home contents insurance, and one in three have no buildings cover.

More than million households face footing the cost of a burglary themselves. Unfortunately, while there are many renters who should have, and could afford, to buy insurance, for many living on the breadline it is not a serious option. Their priorities must be food and basic amenities.
