Don’t fall for this Wanstead bike rack trick

Crafty thieving dilweeds have sneakily sawn through one of the bike racks at Wanstead Tube station in a way that could nastily trick an unsuspecting cyclist.

When the bar is sitting in line with the cemented part, it looks like there is nothing wrong with it – but when it is moved to one side, hey presto the bike could be easily removed.

Beware, Wanstead cyclists, and thank Wansteadium reader Michelle for spotting what had been going on. We’ve reported it to Redbridge, and anyone who knows about who might be responsible for the damage to the rack can get in contact with Crimestoppers anonymously here
