Mobile phone advice.

POLICE have issued advice for victims of mobile phone crime.

Officers are urging people whose phones have been stolen to contact their network provider before contacting police.

Each provider can issue its customers with an IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identifier) which uniquely identifies each handset and can be used to bar all calls.

Acting Sgt Mandy Dosanjh said: "If your phone is lost or stolen contact your service provider immediately to obtain your IMEI."

She added that it would be the first thing police ask for.
