KOOTINGAL RANKED 17TH SAFEST SUBURB IN NEW REPORT

Kootingal has been ranked in the state’s top 20 safest suburbs.

A new report, released by insurer Budget Direct, showed the town had just 13 incidences of property crime per 1,000 households.

Meanwhile, things weren’t so ideal for nearby Tamworth – which has fallen close to the bottom of the list.

Gunnedah and Armidale also fared poorly.
