Bike thefts

The latest Neighbourhood Watch newsletter notes a new crime trend:

Although theft of pedal cycles is a crime which we constantly need to remain aware of, there is an emerging trend of thefts of bikes from sheds and garages where it is possible that high value or specialised bikes have been 'followed' to their home address.

If you drive back from somewhere like Hamsterley Forest with your bike on an external rack, keep an eye out for anyone following you.
