A new scheme to stop cycle thefts is being launched as police say the number of bikes stolen in Cambridgeshire in the last ten years has reached 40,000.
Cambridgeshire police is now working with shops as part of a new online scheme to register bikes, marking them with tamper-proof stickers.
Officers are holding a crime prevention day to encourage people to sign up to the scheme.
They're working with immobilise.com for the registration process, it's hoped the tamper-proof stickers will deter thefts.
People will be able to check if a second-hand bike has been stolen and if recovered, the bike can easily be returned to its owner.
Cambridgeshire police will be at Cambridge Station from 8.30am (24th May) to mark bikes and answer any questions about the scheme.
