How to report an abandoned vehicle

If a vehicle has been abandoned, report it to your council.

It’s important to report abandoned vehicles to your local council as they can be dangerous and may have been used in a crime. It's not always easy to tell if a vehicle has been abandoned. Make sure that you don’t enter or touch the vehicle. If it has been involved in a crime, the vehicle will need to be investigated by the police. It may also contain hazardous waste and could be a fire risk.
