I would like to bring to the notice of Forum members a useful facility to aid the police recover a stolen car. It seems a good idea when one thinks of the devastation if one’s Bristol was stolen – it doesn’t bear thinking about.
I was very interested to learn about the police lost and stolen goods database at http://thenmpr.com . Described as ” helps UK Police forces to identify the owner of lost & stolen goods thousands of times every day. Loss & theft updates you make are immediately available to the police nation-wide “.
Your Bristol can be registered on the police database free of charge via. a free account at www.immobilise.com. I have registered my 403 and I have given a visual description together with registration number and, importantly, chassis and engine numbers. Combined with photos of side and frontal aspects, hopefully it now has an improved chance of detection should I report it to the police as stolen.
Registration of the car details on the website was uncomplicated and I am posting this in the belief that there may be others who see a benefit in doing the same.
