POLICE in March are offering free cycle coding following a spate of thefts in the town.

There have been a number of bikes stolen from the town and police are urging people to review their security.

Sgt Alan Boughen said: "I would urge people to ensure their bikes are locked and secure at all times, even when they are left in a shed or garage.

"Over the next few weeks we will be holding a number of postcoding events to enable people to get their bikes security marked. Such security marks can act as a deterrent to certain thieves."
