“Love it then lock it,” is the message people need to take on board said a police spokesman, who urged cyclists to not let thieves make off with their mode of transport.

“There have been a large number of cycle thefts from Wisbech over the past few weeks,” the spokesman said.

“When leaving your bike, please ensure it is locked with a substantial heavy duty cycle lock.

“Thieves have been targeting those cycles which are not locked, or those with less substantial locks.”
