NORTH Wales Police have released a video showing how owners can deter thieves from taking their bicycles.

The video from the Community Safety team shows a wrap being fixed to the handlebars of a bike.

Owners are able to write their postcode on the wrap before sealing it, and perforations on the strip mean it is very difficult to remove.

In recent weeks there have been a number of thefts of bicycles.

The team said: "Due to the recent bike thefts, we thought now would be a good time to show the video on bike wraps.
