The most criminogenic cities in England and Wales are Brighton, Swansea and Stoke-on-Trent (829, 633 and 534 incidents per 1,000 inhabitants in 2014), as reported by The Telegraph citing StuRents.com. For example, the port city of Brighton in southern England is famous for sexual harassment, and the students often settle in the city' center with its famous nightlife that makes bad statistics. In turn, the Welsh Swansea is a leader in drug-related crimes.
In addition to the three leaders, there are big problems in the English cities as Newcastle, Stockton-on-Tees, Sunderland, Middlesbrough, Bolton and York.
In Cambridge, where is very expensive property, there are many street theft of bicycles (in general this city leads in the number of cyclists, therefore "criminal" indicators are proportional high, as comment English Internet users to the article). Wolverhampton is famous for robberies.
The calm situation is registered in Egham, Surrey (the Royal Holloway University is here), High Wycombe, Bath, Falmouth, Bedford, Loughborough, Midway, Norwich, Durham and Hull.
