More than 1,000 break-ins took place in Northern Ireland during lockdown, with Belfast the worst affected area, new crime figures reveal.

Despite the fact that most people were working from home and providing something of a deterrent, between April and June 1,029 burglaries still occurred — an average of 343 a month.

The statistics were compiled from leading crime data research and analysis platform, UK CrimeStats.
