Every year, Euro NCAP crash tests the latest models to find out how safe they are. But if you're buying used, it can be harder to know what will be best at protecting you and your loved ones in an accident.

To help redress the balance, Thatcham Researsch and Co-op Insurance have come together to crown Britain’s safest used car. They looked at models that cost less than £15,000 used, have a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, come equipped with automatic emergency braking and emit less than 120g/km of CO2.

Here we count down the top 10. Plus, we've got the best five cars for new parents, where the judges put more of a focus on the Euro NCAP child occupant protection scores and how easy and safe it is to fit a child seat.
