Police are giving cyclists the chance to deter thieves from stealing their bikes - or increase their chances of getting them back if they do get taken.

Officers will be marking bicycles and adding them to a national security database at a special event in King’s Lynn next week.

It’s being held outside Halfords, on Campbells Meadow, from 10am - 2pm on Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9.

Sgt Howard Elvidge, of Lynn police, said: “Members of the public are invited to bring along their bikes to be bike marked for free.

“Once they have had their bikes marked they will then be able to register them on the bike register database, this is something which the police have access.

“The benefits are it’s free, it helps police identify stolen bikes and it deters thieves.”

Police in Lynn are trying to re-unite the suspected Cube Aim mountain bike pictured above with its owner. Anyone with information should call Lynn police on 101.
