“We’ve carried out a number of enquiries and are now looking to speak to the man pictured in the CCTV – he may have some information which is useful to our investigation.

He concluded: “If you know who he is or can help locate the stolen bike, please contact us.”

Those with any details can call police on their non-emergency number of 101 by quoting incident number 22*176417.
