A report in today’s Lancaster Guardian states that Lancaster had the highest number of reported bike thefts in West Lancashire in 2015. There’s no real analysis of the figures. Is it that we in Lancaster are more diligent about reporting thefts? Less diligent about locking our bikes securely? Since Lancaster has relatively high rates of utility cycle usage, is it that there are simply more bikes to steal? Or do we have more covetable bikes than Blackpool?
Any views on this?
