Police are appealing for information after a bike was stolen from a conservatory and another was taken from a shed.

The first happened at a Leicester Road address. The bicycle, which was left in the conservatory between 6pm on March 4 and 8pm on March 5, was stolen by a suspect who approached from the back garden.

The victim believes the metal gate in an alleyway next to the house may have been left open.

The bike, worth £1,000, is white and has the words “Secteur” and “Specialised” on its frame.

The second bicycle, stolen from a Grosvenor Road address on March 5, had been left in a padlocked wooden shed.

The victim heard what she called a suspicious noise at 4.30am, but thought nothing more of it.

She then discovered at 7.40am that the shed door had been forced open and that her cream Trek Allant bike, worth £500, had gone.

The offender is believed to have accessed the garden by climbing over a gate.

A spokesman for Redbridge police said residents are urged to register their bikes on www.immobilise.com.

If you have any information about the stolen bikes, call officers on 101.
