edinburgh and Cardiff were today named as the places where phone owners are most likely to have their mobiles stolen.

The two capitals top a list of 30 of the UK’s biggest towns and cities where thieves apparently steal the most gadgets.

The report found 21 to 25-year-olds were the most likely victims of mobile phone theft.

Stephen Ebbett, of insurance firm Protect Your Bubble, said: “Cardiff and Edinburgh’s big student populations could explain why these are hotspots for theft claims.”
