Police investigate how easy it is to steal a bike

Avon and Somerset police have carried out an experiment to demonstrate how easy it is for bike thieves to get away unchallenged in broad daylight.

They locked up a bike and an officer went with bolt cutters to ''steal'' it. Around 50 people saw it and not a single person reported the theft.

Jenny Hill reports.
