British Transport Police are appealing for witnesses after two bikes were stolen at Trowbridge railway station.

A white Kona mountain bike worth £400 was stolen after the owner left it at the station at about 6.30am on Tuesday, October 15.

When he returned later the same day, he discovered his bike was missing.

Another bike was stolen from a train on November 11 after the owner, travelling on a Salisbury to Cardiff Central service at around 7pm, placed it in the vestibule area of the train carriage.

It was stolen by a man who is thought to have got off the train at Trowbridge station.

PC Kelly Millar, one of the investigating officers, said: “We are working closely with cycle and second-hand shops in the area and are monitoring online auction and advertising sites to make it more difficult for thieves to sell on stolen property.”

Anyone with information should call British Transport Police on Freefone 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

In all calls quote incident reference WWA/B8 of 03/12/13.

The first pic looks as if it has been taken from a well used 50 year old cartoon film reel, not what one would expect from a modern CCTV

the second image is a tough one.
The Turin Shroud gave forensic scientists far more to go on.

While I agree you should be able to leave your pushbike anywhere, you visit and expect it to be there on your return. Unfortunately, currently we have too many light-fingered human beings all up and down the UK.
A relation of mine is a very keen cyclist, and often cycles about 10 miles to and from work 5 days a week. However, on arriving at work he removes his front wheel. Then chains his cycle (Minus front Wheel) to the cycle rack provided by his employer. He then takes his wheel to his workstation.

Recently, I had occasion to use a Light Rapid Transport system during my travels. While on the platform I noticed, were some metal containers with a door and a sloping roof. Apparently, they are cycle sheds that can be hired inside there is provision to chain your cycle and then you can lock the door. I am not sure how they are operated, yet in my mind I surmised they were something in the style those luggage lockers at main line rail stations.

I would suggest if someone requires further information, open the following link

Judging by the quality of the CCTV, I'd say he's related to Super Mario.

If he keeps these ignorant suicidal buggers off the road, even for one day, he deserves a medal.
