Bike stolen from close- Garthland Drive My partner's bike was stolen from the ground floor of the close sometime around Friday 6th October. It was tied to the railings of the stairs with a bike lock but the thieves cut through this.
Probably little chance of getting it back although I am keeping an eye on Gumtree and Facebook sale pages.
Can't imagine it's a great deal of use to anyone as the front wheel and saddle had been taken off to deter thieves. Whoever took it might have had a car or van to carry it.
Heads up to bike owners in the area to be extra vigilant. Ollie - 9/10/2017 3:31:31 PM
Check it wasnt taken by your factors, bikes shouldnt be chained to the stairwell, its a fire hazard......

Factors can't just cut chains off people's bikes and take them away .
If people can get passed the bike as it doesn't take up much space I don't see the issue .

We called the factor, they didn't take it but said they would have issued a warning if it was causing any obstruction
