Give me the source data, damnit

I read that Glasgow is the "safest city in the UK". I hear this from the BBC, from The Herald, the Daily Record and, of course, the Guardian (which, interestingly, actually tries to draw a conclusion from the figures rather than randomly quoting them.)

None of these websites can point me to the original figures, so that I might peruse them at my leisure. I can, presumably, work out the salient points by cross-referencing each newspaper report, but, frankly, life is too short. Annoyingly, even the people who produced the report don't mention it on their website. Grrr.
