Solihull is one of the safest places in the country to leave your vehicle, according to new research.
The borough is the third safest for car crime after Swindon and Cheltenham, according to a motor theft index compiled by Endsleigh insurers.
According to the index, Hull is the riskiest place in Britain for car crime.
Nottingham, Bradford, Manchester and Doncaster completed the five worst spots for motorists looking to avoid thieves.
The results came against a background of falling car crime, with Government figures revealing offences fell by around a fifth over the past year.
They were collected by analysing motor claims over the last three years from tens of thousands of insurance policyholders across Britain.
Stuart Wartalski, of Endsleigh, said the risk of theft is particularly high after Christmas when vehicles are targeted for satnavs, DVDs, laptops and cameras.
He said motorists should always keep valuables out of sight, fit their vehicle with an alarm and immobiliser and park in well-lit places.
