Police issue advice to reduce bicycle thefts
Police are asking Manx residents not to leave bicycles unlocked as part of a campaign to reduce theft.
The Isle of Man Constabulary warns bikes are easy target for thieves and vandals.
Officers say simple steps like using a bicycle lock and ensuring bikes aren't left somewhere they can be seen will deter thieves.
Having a security mark on the frame of the bicycle and keeping a clear colour photo of the bike could help recover the bike if it is taken.
