Police in Honiton are urging residents to make sure they have adequate security measures in place following an increase in motorcycle thefts in the town.

A police spokesman said: “We would recommend that people review their security arrangements to ensure that these are adequate – consideration should be made to using quality chains or locks and where possible chaining these to a substantial fixed object such as a lamppost or by making use of a garage overnight.

“Further security advice can be obtained from your bike manufacturer or supplier.”

Police have arrested an individual on suspicion of stealing a motorcycle who is on police bail at this time whilst officers conduct further enquiries.
