Greater Manchester's bike hire scheme 'misunderstood', says Mobike

Greater Manchester's bike hire scheme has been "misunderstood", the China-based rental company Mobike said, after a spate of vandal attacks.

Mobikes, which have no docking station, have been found dumped in canals, vandalised, and others have been stolen.

The scheme, similar to London's "Boris Bikes", was introduced to Manchester and Salford on 29 June.
