I lost my passport and so when I filled in my daughters form I did one for me for a peplacement. Repoted it to police and got a crime reference number like the notes told me to.
Kira got hers back last week and i phoned to see where mine was to be told it is at the peterborough office under investigation
We go on holiday in 2 weeks and I am so scared they won't do it in time.
Why would they take so long on mine??
Would they refuse me another cos I lost my last one??

So worried.

doesnt mean you under investigation..there could be someone trying to use your lost one..ring back, ask for a further explanation and tell them about your booked holiday..hope you get sorted

my BIL lost his and had to fill a new application in too. They're taking longer with the "lost" ones I think because of so much false ID doing the rounds. He did get his back within about 2 weeks though

They won't refuse,don't worry. my sister has lost hers (when pissed usually!) at least 6 times,although they have no put their foot down and told her no more!

Have phoned again and been told its not under investigation but my application is under assesment!! Its now been 3 weeks since I sent off via post office and they have said not to panic till end of next week!! But that will be 1 week before I fly
I don't know what to do. My daughter now has hers and this is her 1st time on a plane and we might have to cancel

Don't worry, they do this sometimes. When I worked for HM Customs and Excise (how many jobs have I had? ) they even checked up on one of the Officers passports, it just came up as a routine. It's probably more common now though, with all the identity fraud, as it was many, many years ago when I was but a teenager.
