Fashionable crime of the moment appears to be the theft of pedal-cycles from sheds – often broken into by simply unscrewing the lock fixings.  Police recommend using quality locks and fixings and also locking the bike to something inside the shed; additionally, “get your bike security-marked and registered at BikeRegister” and “record the details of your bike – frame number, bike register number, any distinguishing features – and take a photo of it”.

Our Local Police Team are taking active steps to catch the irresponsible helmetless moped-riders and the “wheelies” bike-riders.

Please ensure you are locking your cars whenever you leave them. Police report that 70% of motor vehicle crime is facilitated by people failing to lock their cars.
