CCTV pictures have been released by police investigating a spate of bike thefts from railway stations.

British Transport Police has released images of a man they are trying to identify in connection with the thefts, which took place between March and June of this year.

The series of thefts began at Hitchin station on March 27 and at Sandy railway station on May 1 and 25. Additional thefts took place at Huntingdon on May 6 and 14, Biggleswade rail station on June 3 and Bedford station on June 4.

Investigating officer PC Nigel Wakefield, said: “We are hoping to identify the man in the images in connection with the thefts, which we are treating as linked.

“Unfortunately, cycles are a popular target for thieves and I would urge people to be vigilant. The best thing to remember is to register your bike and also to ensure a solid lock is used to secure it. If a bike is adequately marked, it makes it much easier to identify and therefore reduces its desirability to thieves.”
