It has been an increased of stolen motorbikes in the Bermondsey Spa area (new blocks of flats near St James church, Prospect House in Sun Passage and surrounding). 3 bikes have been stolen in August and the latest bike was stolen Friday 6th September.
I think that this is more of a London thing than just Bermondsey, although I did read on another website that a bike was stolen near Lynton Rd just two weeks ago and a neighbour of ours recently caught some youths lifting the cover off his bike in the early hours. Weíre not far from St James Rd.
Iíve got a garage, but anyone parking outside needs a strong lock such as an Almax or similar plus a tracker fitted. When I park at my home I put my bike up against the front door but Iím still paranoid that someone will steal it! We should be able to leave our bikes without worrying that some scumbag will take it but thatís not the way it works unfortunately.
