The cost of rural crime in Scotland fell by £100,000 last year, according to NFU Mutual figures.

The rural insurer estimates that rural crime cost Scotland £1.8 mn in 2014, down from £1.9 mn in 2013.

This was against a UK rural crime value of £37.8 mn for the year, which was down 15 percent on the year before.

The figures are based on results from the company’s annual Rural Crime Survey.

NFU Mutual said the most common items stolen in Scotland last year were all terrain vehicles (ATVs) such as quad bikes, tools and livestock.

The insurer also reported a growing concern over cybercrime and said criminals were targeting different items such as solar panels.
