With the Tour de Yorkshire coming to town it is a great opportunity to think about dusting down the old push bike and checking the lycra for elasticity!

It’s always so nice to be able to get out in the evenings to take in the countryside and coast but please be aware that thieves are also out looking for every opportunity to take your bike.

Make sure that you have a good strong lock if you are leaving it unattended, even if it’s just a few minutes.

It takes seconds for a thief to snatch your bike and make off with it.

When you store your bike at home make sure it’s locked inside your garage or shed and keep the garage and shed locked at all times.

Don’t forget to register your bike, and any other valuable possessions, on the property register Immobilise.com (www.immobilise.com).

We are expecting big crowds for the start of the Tour de Yorkshire in Bridlington on Friday 28 April.

If you are heading down there make sure you leave your home locked and your car secure, don’t leave anything on display in your car, thieves will take every opportunity to steal from you and ruin your day.

Three steps game

Bridlington has started to see a very unwelcome trend recently.

Young people are daring each other to open the front doors of people’s homes and take three steps inside.

The Three Step Game is no fun for anyone.

If you are caught you will be questioned on suspicion of burglary and may find yourself with a criminal record.

It does give us another opportunity to remind all householders to LOCK THEIR DOORS.

Two thirds of all burglaries happen after someone has left their door open.

Don’t leave yourself wide open to opportunist thieves. We have lots of information to help you protect your home on our website: http://www.humberside.police.uk/protect-your- home.
