Locked-Up Bicycles Stolen From Three Holiday Parks On The Isle Of Wight


Locked-up high-value bicycles have been stolen in a spate of recent incidents on the Isle of Wight, prompting an appeal from Hampshire Constabulary.

The police force is investigating after thefts from holiday parks in East Cowes, Thorness Bay and Appuldurcombe.

Two bikes, including a Specialized Camber 29 FSR, were taken between 8pm on 4 August and 7am on 5 August from Waverley Park Holiday Centre, East Cowes. Worth around £5,000, the bikes were chained up outside a caravan.

In the early hours of 9 August, four mountain bikes, including two Force Enduros, were stolen from Thorness Bay Holiday Park. A fence that the bikes were locked to was damaged so they could be removed.

On the 9 August two road bikes, worth a total of £5,000, were stolen from the roof of a vehicle at Appuldurcombe Gardens Holiday Park.
