Got in the car this morning to go to work (parked on street near my house) and as it was raining turned on the wipers. To find....that all 3 of them had been nicked during the night.

Luckily I'm close to a Halfords so got the lot replaced with no problem. Would you bother to report it to police? I'm not expecting them to catch anyone but might be useful in case it happens again (to me or anyone else locally).

If you report it don't forget to tell your insurance you have had a loss.

And declare it on next year's renewal.

buy new wipers and seethe it will be cheaper

Thanks legotits - if I told police would I have to let insurance know even if I'm not claiming? Am resigned to seething and have already bought new wipers.

Yup.
Even if you don't intend to claim you should tell them about losses.

If you suffer a loss the chance of you suffering another loss raises so they like to know.
and use these stats to push up premiums

It's covered in a recent which? magazine.
