Avon and Somerset police are targeting cyclists in a crime prevention campaign as National Bike Week gets underway.

More than 4,500 bikes were stolen in the force area last year - hotspots were Bristol, Taunton and Weston-super-Mare.

Police want riders to ensure they use secure locks when leaving bikes unattended.
