INVERNESS residents are much more fearful of becoming victims of crime than those in the rest of the Highlands, a new survey has revealed.
A significant proportion of people living in the city said they worried about their safety, with nearly 75% of those surveyed from one ward – Inverness Central – reporting that they feared crime.
The situation in the centre of the city is a striking contrast to the surrounding area, where only 23% of respondents in the Aird and Loch Ness ward – a mainly rural area – reported being worried.
