New phone number to report non urgent crime

A NEW non-emergency police telephone number is being trialled in Waltham Forest.

Residents wishing to report low-level crime or anti-social behaviour, such as noise nuisance, fly-tipping or graffiti can do so by dialling 101.

Calls have a flat rate of 10p.

The scheme, which is also being piloted in Barking and Dagenham, will run until September.

    I tried this after it had supposedly gone live, and heard a recorded message saying that it was not provided in my area…

    I know that it is a number used nationally, and the call is routed depending on where you call from, but I called from Wanstead Flats at the end of my road, so I should have been connected!

    I was only charged 10p from my mobile, but all the same it wasn’t any use!
