More than £25,000 worth of motorcycle clothing and three motorcycles have been stolen from a shop in Greater Manchester.

Thieves struck at Ducati in Cross Street, Sale, at 0045 BST on 27 June.

Police have issued a photo of one of the jackets, worth about £600, in the hope people will recognise it and contact them.

"The clothing is very distinctive and only Ducati retailers are licensed to sell it," Det Con Rachel Ostick said.

"Therefore if you are offered any sort of Ducati branded clothing from anyone other than a recognised dealer, please call us immediately," she added.

The three motorbikes - an orange KTM 950, a blue Suzuki 600 GSXR and a silver Kawasaki 1000 ZX10 - were worth a total of £12,000, police said.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Greater Manchester Police or Crimestoppers.
