HALF of all convicted pickpockets on the Tube are Romanian (and officials say the figures are the tip of the iceberg)

  • Of the 170 convictions between 2012 and 2013 52 per cent were Romanian
  • Britons were also guilty of stealing from fellow train passengers
  • Home Office says criminals are liable to be removed if they ‘abuse’ rights
  • Figures released by British Transport Police show half of all convictions for pickpocketing on the London Underground are handed out to Romanians.

    Information revealed through a Freedom of Information request shows out of the 5,280 reported pickpocketing incidents on the London Underground between November 1, 2012 and October 31, 2013, there were just 170 convictions.

    Of those convictions, 52 per cent were Romanian.
