RANKED: The 11 most dangerous lines on the London Underground

The British Transport Police has published figures revealing the number of reported crimes committed on the London Underground - and no, the state of the Central Line at rush hour isn't one of them.

The data, released to Mirror Online, shows that 12,527 crimes were reported on the Tube and Docklands Light Railway in 2015, including robbery, acts of violence and fraud.

That's the equivalent of 34 crimes reported every day - which is staggeringly small when you consider that the London Underground is used by some 1.305 billion passengers every year. 

Based on where those crimes took place, here's how the London Underground stacks up - from "least dangerous" to "most danger" Tube line.
