Detectives investigating cycle thefts in Sussex have released images of people they want to speak to in connection with five incidents.

British Transport police have made inquiries and followed up numerous leads in a bid to identify the men without success, Insp Gary Ancell said.

"We are asking for the public's help to identify these five. If you know them we want to hear from you," he said.

The incidents all involved bike or wheel thefts at railway stations.

They took place in Shoreham, Lewes, Hassocks and Plumpton in the past three months.

Insp Ancell said bicycles were a "popular target" for thieves but people could take security measures and mark their bikes.

He said cycle crime across the Southern rail network fell by 6% in 2010-11, and police were working closely with Southern rail operator to tackle crime.
