Bike thefts prompt warning from Burnham-On-Sea police

Police in Burnham-On-Sea have this week warned cyclists in the area to take extra care in securing their bikes after a spate of thefts.

One bike was stolen on Saturday from outside the 99p shop in Burnham High Street while another was taken from a front garden in Rosewood Avenue.

In total, four insecure pedal cycles worth hundreds of pounds have been stolen, prompting the warning.

Inspector Roger Tolley told "We would advise bike owners to ensure they are not left in view and are securely locked away when not in use."

He appealed for anyone with information about the thefts - or who is offered cheap bikes - to contact police via the new non-emergency number, 101.
