In news that will shock absolutely no-one who's ever had to fight their way through rush hour on Oxford Street, the Central Line (the one that’s red because it’s like hell) has been revealed as the tube line that you’re most likely to have something pinched on.
According to figures obtained by IB Times UK, of the 15,635 accounts of recorded theft in 2014 that took place on the underground, 2,100 took place on the Central Line.
Stark contrast to the Waterloo and City Line (although in fairness it only has two stops) which could appear to be London’s safest haven with only 12 reported offences for 2014.
