Saga predicts spike in home thefts

Home insurance firms are braced for a flurry of claims in upcoming months, Saga suggested today.New figures from the provider show that burglary numbers in November are 24 per cent higher than those in February.The report also said that thefts from homes are at their highest levels from October to December, with a particular rise generally seen after the clocks go back to GMT.This occurs on Sunday October 26th this year."The research showed that the three days you are least likely to be burgled are Christmas Day, Boxing Day and the 27th December," Saga said in a statement. "Theft claims are also lower during January and February, in part due to the colder weather and also because people are spending more time at home."According to figures from the Association of British Insurers, one in four UK homes do not have home insurance.
