  • Markfield park in tottenham. Lots of the same over the past couple of weeks, so best to avoid.

  • From Reddit:

    "This guy calling himself "the peddler" wearing a velodrome helmet and balaclava is returning stolen bikes (including mine) from online sellers and patrolling the streets making sure bikes are properly locked up and registered online. He was just interviewed on the radio!"­mw

    1 hr 16 mins in for his full interview

  • Grey Kona Paddy Wagon stolen - cunt nicked it from Shadwell Basin while I was swimming, as well as my bag. Lucky he left my clothes, I suppose. I was so busy making sure my clothes weren't blowing away I forgot to lock it.

  • That's a low blow. :(

    Quite possibly not an opportunist but someone who had seen you swim there before and might initially only have been after your bag.

    What do you do with your general valuables when swimming there? Do you have a watertight container for them?

  • I tend not to bring anything except my keys, fortunately. The bag was empty - it just has my towel and goggles. But I have gone on the way to work and left laptop/phone etc there while I was in - in the depths of winter when I don't swim too far from the edge in case I get hypothermic.

  • Several bikes were stolen from a Central London student hall bike rack. Thieves jumped a wall to get in and out, took multiple bikes before security noticed them via CCTV. Got in a fight with the officer who got injured and thieves escaped.
    Two of the bikes I knew:

    Specialized Langster 2017 61cm red
    Fixed, Alex rims, flat bar, black avid brake lever, crud roadracer mudguards
    Bike registered: permanent marking, QR code sticker, bike register sticker

    Focus Culebro 56cm black/green
    105 group-set, shitty white mango saddle and noname white front wheel (original parts were nicked recently)
    Mudguards, phone holder
