PC Darren Tissiman said: “A 27-year-old man secured his bike in the racks on the road side of Doncaster station at midday. When he returned a couple of hours later, his high-value cycle and lock were gone.

“A subsequent review of CCTV footage of the bike racks shows a man cycling up to them, discarding the bike he arrived on before breaking the lock from the victim’s cycle and riding it from the scene.”

Anyone with information should call British Transport Police on 0800 405040 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
