How grim is your Postcode?

Where Police data is not specific to an address for privacy reasons, most roads are represented by 1 to 2 markers or clusters. However, this should be enough to ascertain if the road you live in or are thinking of moving to, is a crime hot spot. The only exception could be where there is a large cluster of a single crime category on a street, as this could but not necessarily be related to multiple incidents at one address.
