You can either call 101 and report the theft/loss there or visit your local police station to report it. Some police stations, however, do not give out reference numbers for loss anymore and in those instances we would ask that the loss is reported on a website called www.reportmyloss.com as this will generate a certificate that we will need to see a copy of when you are claiming. If it is a theft, we will need the crime ref number.   If this happens when abroad, we would ask that you contact the local police station where you are. We would then need to have a police statement and a crime ref number.
