Ilford has ranked joint second for mobile phone loss in the UK, according to an insurance firm.

The findings from Gadget Cover revealed Ilford came joint second with Liverpool, with 24 per cent of its claims coming from those areas.

Taking the joint top spot was Coventry and Bolton making up 26pc of claims.

Damage, such as dropping a device in the bath or on the floor, is the main reason why most claims are made, according to the company, but loss is the second largest, ahead of theft.

Gadget Cover operators director Amanda Kerry-Wallington said: “Losing a handset can be very distressing and inconvenient, especially if you are not insured and don’t have a back-up handset, meaning you cannot connect with family and friends.”
