If your vehicle has been stolen, report it to us by calling 101, or if the incident is in progress, by calling 999.
Do not report a stolen vehicle using our online reporting system.
We need to get the registration number on our systems as quickly as possible to give us the best opportunity to recover your car’
We are only responsible for dealing with abandoned vehicles if they are on a road causing an obstruction or danger, or if you believed they may be lost or stolen.
If you've made enquiries with your neighbours, no one knows who the car belongs to and you think it's been abandoned you can report it to your local council who should be able to trace the vehicle’s owner and arrange for it to be removed.
Report an untaxed vehicle
Reports of untaxed vehicles should be directed to the DVLA.
Vehicles causing an obstruction to a driveway can only be removed by us if there is a dropped kerb in place, and the vehicle is being prevented from leaving the driveway. We will not attend a report of obstruction where a vehicle is unable to get onto a drive/parking area.
Further information and advice can be found on our Ask The Police section.
