British Transport Police have released an image of a man they would like to speak to after a bike was stolen from Market Harborough railway station.

The theft took place just after 4.15pm on Monday, June 1.

Investigating officer, PC Christopher Potter said: “A man entered the station through the main front entrance, and walked onto platform one where he observed the cycle rack for a short period of time.

“He then removed one of the bikes from the rack, and boarded a train. He left the train at Leicester and rode off on the bike towards London Road.

“We believe the man in the photo may be able to assist our enquires into this incident. If you recognise him, please contact us.”
