Cambridgeshire Police are urging cyclists to take precautions following a number of thefts at Ferry Meadows off Ham Lane, Peterborough. Seven high specification bikes have been stolen over the past two nights. All of the victims had been camping at the park.
Some of the bikes were left unlocked while others were padlocked.
Inspector Andy Bartlett indicated the same person or people were believed to be behind the multiple thefts: “Work is underway to trace those responsible for these thefts and we would appeal to anyone with information to get in touch.”
Cyclists can take several precautions to protect their property.
* Park your cycle in a public area and open to public view or within the scope of a CCTV camera.
* Lock the cycle to a fixed and sturdy object using a heavyweight D-lock around both the frame, and at least one wheel.
* Register the cycle with www.immobilise.com
* Make a note of your frame number, and keep it safe.
Anyone with information in relation to the thefts should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111
