Police have reminded cyclists to lock up their bikes after a spate of thefts in Norwich.

Between Wednesday, January 28 and last Friday, bicycles were stolen from Dereham Road, St Andrew s Street, Rouen Road, Gentleman s Walk, Castle Street, Surrey Street, Coslany Square, Coburg Street, Armes Street and Bedford Street. Superintendent Dave Marshall, Norwich policing commander, said: We would once again also like to highlight the theft of pedal cycles from bike racks in the city.

Police strongly recommend cyclists use a good quality D lock as thieves will carry items that can be used to cut small cable locks.

Police in Norwich have arrested no less than eight people for the theft of pedal cycles in the last week.

Supt Marshall urged anybody who notices suspicious activity to call Norfolk police on 101.
