Do you know these men?

A bicycle worth more than �300 was stolen from cycle sheds at Upminster rail station, and now British Transport Police (BTP) are seeking information.

Officers released CCTV images of two men they would like to identify and talk to in connection with the incident, which took place around 11am on Saturday December 3.

Pc Russell Stobbs, the investigating officer, said: “Around 6.30am that morning the victim had secured his cycle to the racks closest to the ticket office at the station.

“After leaving the bike for the day, he returned that afternoon only to discover it had been stolen.

“CCTV shows two men approaching the racks around 11am. One acts as a lookout whilst the other breaks the lock and frees the cycle. They both then leave the station.”
