Bike theft experiment in Oxford

A CYCLIST became so fed up with theft in the city he used boltcutters to steal his own bike to see if anyone would notice. And nobody stopped him. Nine times.

In December, the Oxford Mail revealed bike thefts in the city had risen to their highest level for six years. Police figures showed 1,380 bicycles were stolen since April 1 last year,
the equivalent of more than five a day.
