£12,000 Of Bikes Stolen In Huntingdon

Extra police are now patrolling parts of Huntingdon that are popular with cyclists.

More than £12,000 worth of bicycles have been stolen from the town since the start of the year.

Police say there have been 50 bikes reported stolen in that time.

23 of those reports have come in May alone.

PCSO Andrew Goodwin said: "There has been an increase in the number of bike thefts in Huntingdon in recent months.

We're finding high value bikes are not being locked up properly; one bike worth £550 was left insecure outside Sapley Post Office and another worth £350 was left insecure at Foxgrove, Godmanchester.

Police officers are carrying out extra patrols and taking action to catch those responsible, but we also need cyclists to take precautions by locking their bike up effectively and registering it on Immobilise."

Cyclists are being advised to lock bikes to a fixed object with a good quality lock.
