    What these figures show is that Alexandra Ward includes most of the town centre, which is where most public order offences occur, as well as a lot of the drugs offences. Harbour Ward in Lowestoft is the same. The Town Centre of Ipswich skews the crime figures for the wards that cover it. Don’t forget that these wards are not exactly the same size either.

  2. Good point. Plus the fact that part of Gipping is in the town centre gives it a ridiculously high statistic compared to neighbouring Sprites.
