Reporting the theft
It really is worth reporting the theft of your bike. It’s important that they know the scale of theft taking place, and where the current locations are. They also manage to recover a surprising number of bikes that are not reported stolen, and so can’t be returned to the owners.
Cambridge Police’s phone number for non-emergencies is simply 101. Their other contact details are available online.
