3 lever easy to break into. 5 lever much better.

Agreed, which is why I mentioned internal door. Once they are inside your home, I doubt any lock is going to stop them.

decent price

​OP did say internal

They also have this 5 lever for £6.29, which is in itself a decent deal:

This deal is a web error. Actual locks are Century so fine if you're happy with them. I ordered three Thurs for click & collect and didn't discover till I got home so a double journey for a refund. Not usually that pedantic but after all if it states Yale, they should be Yale. Screwfix I.T. dept say they would correct it immediately !? Still a good deal though for a 3 Lever mortice

This will be ideal for my John http://thumbs.modthesims2.com/img/1/2/1/0/3/5/MTS_paperbackwriter-365977-locke002.jpg

I know the OP suggests 'internal' locks... but be aware that most insurance policies specify the standard to which your door locks should be e.g. BS 3621 Many people blindly answer 'yes' to all the insurance questions on signing up, and it's later people find out they don't have what they said they did. I see peoples home security day in day out and much of it is lacking. These locks are rubbish in my opinion but actually most of the time it is not actually the lock that is broken during a break in.

Tried to buy one of these last week in shop. No stock in lol, good luck with this one.

You are talking about external doors when you mention insurance companies? I doubt very much that any insurance company specifies the standard for any internal doors. Most households probably don't even have locks on internal doors. Something like this is intended for a bedroom door (aka a privacy lock) or the bathroom maybe.

I was talking about external doors generally, or any requirements of an insurance policy

You say it's not the lock?

Many break ins don't target the door lock itself. Most break ins are via a window via being insecure in some way, forced or broken. Doors tend to be stronger and harder. Often a door frame or keep gives on a wooden mortise locked door before the actual lock itself breaks.
