POLICE issued a warning after a bike was stolen from an Alnwick play area.
The dark blue pedal cycle was taken from Swansfield Park between 5pm and 5.30pm on Saturday, October 8.
Alnwick Neighbourhood Police Inspector Sue Peart said: “We find that pedal cycles are often taken by scrap metal dealers who get quite a lot of money.
“Equally, it’s coming up to Christmas and there’s a market for bikes. Even if you leave it for a few minutes, lock it away.
“Locks are relatively cheap and do a pretty good job.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 03456 043043 ext 69191.
