A new app has uncovered a number of crime hotspots in Doncaster – leading to residents fearing for their safety when walking the streets of their home town.

‘WalkSafe’ allows users to look across an area and see how many crimes have been committed, the type of crime and how long ago it was reported. The key works as follows:

  • Red- violence/sexual assault
  • Black- knife crime
  • Light Blue- feeling unsafe
  • Yellow- mugging

Following the tragic death of Sarah Everard, apps like this aim to keep women, men and children safe from any existing dangers in their area.
