A BIKE was stolen from outside a Bradwell pub.

Thieves stole the red and silver Trax bike, which had been left unlocked, from outside the Arches pub in Beccles Road between 8.30pm and 9pm on August 23.

Police have issued advise to cyclists to avoid further bike thefts, which includes:

Change where you leave your bike locked on a regular basis, so it won't be noticed and stolen to order

Always lock your cycle, even if you're only leaving it for a moment

Lock your bike through the frame and secure removable parts

Make the lock or chain hard to manoeuvre when parked

Face the lock towards the ground to make it difficult to pick

Contact: PC Andy Bunter at Gorleston police on 0845 4564567.
