Residents in Diss are being urged to be careful when leaving their bicycles in public areas after two were stolen.

On Wednesday, October 19 at about 11.40am, a blue Raleigh mountain bike was reported stolen from bike racks outside Diss Swim and Fitness Centre on Victoria Road.

The bike had been secured with two cable locks, both of which had been cut and left.

A white man is believed to have been acting suspiciously before cutting the locks and another man is then believed to have ridden off on the bike.

Shortly after 12.15pm on the same day, a white Raleigh hybrid road bike was reported stolen from The Original Factory Shop, also on Victoria Road.
