In the UK a burglary takes place every 43 seconds.

(According to the Home Office’s British Crime Survey (BCS), there were 745,000 burglaries committed in 2010/11, and one in 40 households was the target of a break-in or attempted break-in in 2010.

BTW – The Home Office isn’t someone working from home, it’s a UK government department responsible for immigration and passports, drugs policy, counter-terrorism, police, and science and research. Busy people.)
