Contrary to whatever other potentially misleading impressions Bankstone News may previously have imparted to its readers, Bradford, as it turns out, is a thoroughly rotten place.

Worse yet, its various postcodes are among the top ‘hotspots’ for any number of vilenesses, not the least of which, according to a league table compiled by Crimestompers and the FBI, is the heinous crime of crashing for cash-ins, or, as nobody other than Bankstone News is now calling it, C4C.

Bratford postcodes scooped no less than three of the top ten hootspot scores nationally, with BD9, BD3 and BD8 coming in respectively at first, third and filth in the C4C rankings.

According to FBI Director Ben Felcher, mapping hotpots is a good way of pinpointing areas where other vehicles are most likely to brake suddenly in front of you, but “the reality is that staged accidents can happen anywhere and at any time.”

Now FBI Ben is calling on ordinary members of the public to do their bit. Anyone with information about C4C scams, can call the Crimesnoopers Chatline on 0800 422 0421 or visit www.crashscamps.co.uk.



    What our clients say about us

    Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
