"Pickpockets" Pickpockets, Beggars, Crime and Scams Tip by Cham

I cannot stress this enough after seeing it happen to people too many times

keep hold of your valuables

don't leave them in a bag you are carrying over your shoulder it's very easy for them to be stolen.

Don't keep all your cards and money in one wallet

unless you really need to don't take your passport out with you.

Don't use your phone outside of tube stations.

carry your train/bus ticket in seperately from everything else so that you can at least still get back to where you're staying.

If you do end up getting something stolen report it straight away as soon as you notice it's missing

call one of the directory lines who'll help you locate the nearest police station to you and give you their number.
