Some years ago a friend (EU national like the OP) had his passport stolen in the US the day he was meant to come back. He went to the airport in the US, announced he no passport had since passport and the airline contacted the UK Home office which within 30mins or authorised his entry and provided a reference number to show at immigration. I'd tend to think that BA did contact the Home Office; I understand this is a standard procedure in these cases. What I don't understand is why the Home Office would deny entry to a permanent resident.
