Police have released CCTV images of a woman they want to speak to after a bicycle was stolen from Westgate train station.

A blue and silver Mongoose mountain bike was stolen at around 3pm on Monday, September 16.

PC Kevin Webster, of the British Transport Police (BTP), said: “If you recognise the woman pictured, who was wearing a three quarter length high visibility jacket and a baseball cap at the time of the incident, please contact us as we believe she may be able to assist us with our enquiries into this crime.

“It’s a sad fact of life that bicycles remain a desirable target for many thieves at train stations.

“However, BTP is cracking down on this type of crime and wants to send a strong message out to thieves that we have a dedicated team of officers specifically focused on tackling this type of crime.”
