Where is the safest city in the UK to buy a home?
Carlisle came in first place, receiving just nine risk points.
The city had fewer than five fires between 2009 and 2017 with zero earthquakes and a low risk of both flooding and building subsidence.
Due to where it’s based, the city is also not at risk from coastal flooding.
There is also a higher risk of flooding due to being situated on the coast.
However, clever architecture and flood defence systems are in place to keep residents safe.
Nottingham comes in fourth place, having had a few more earthquakes than Liverpool and Northampton.
Aberdeen, Wolverhampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Glasgow, Derby and Cambridge complete the UK’s 10 safest cities.
