Police will stage a free bike marking event to help prevent bicycles from being stolen.

It will take place at the Oval, Stevenage between 12 noon and 3pm on Saturday, April 18.

Each bike is marked with the owner’s postcode and house number on the frame in UV pen and if stolen it can the be traced back to the original owner.

PCSO Tom Sharp, who is leading the event, said: “Bike marking events always prove to be popular.

“With the warmer weather upon us and more people getting on their bikes, now is the ideal time to get them security marked.

“If your bike is lost or stolen in the future, it’s more likely to be returned to you if it is security marked as we will be able to identify who it belongs to.

“You don’t need to book an appointment, just turn up on the day.”
