Rural Crime

Last Updated on October 4, 2023

Rural Crime is a huge problem for farmers, villages, rural retailers and businesses.

One of the UK’s leading rural insurers, NFU Mutual, prepared an annual survey of claims experiences within their offices all over the UK.

NFU’s findings include:

  • Rural crime theft cost was approx. £42.3m in the UK during 2012
  • Yorkshire, Essex, Lincolnshire and Kent are the worst-affected counties for rural crime
  • Tools, quad bikes and fuel are the most targeted items according to the survey
