BIKES fitted with GPS trackers are being hidden across Doncaster in an effort to catch out cycle thieves.

The ‘trap bike’ aims to deter thieves following a recent spate of cycle thefts across the town.

Chief Inspector Neil Thomas said: “This will hopefully reduce the number of thefts. There is no way of knowing which bicycle is fitted with the GPS device. If the trap bike is stolen, there is a much greater chance the thief will be found and arrested.”
