Recorded crime has risen, including violent crimes

Truthfullness 0 / 5

Fact checked by: fullfact


Crime recording practises have changed accounting for “more recorded crime”. Actual crime rates have been stable in recent years according to the Office for National Statistics. Knife crime may be rising, but the data isn’t there to properly assess.

Do you agree this deserves 0 / 5 for truthfullness?

In the interest of impartiality, if you disagree please leave a comment below.
No promises to change the rating but it will be considered.
