A THIEF stole a bike from outside a North Swindon Gym after breaking a heavy-duty lock.

The victim left her bike near DW Fitness First at the Orbital Shopping Centre on August 28 between 11am and midday.

She secured her bike to the railings with the lock but when she returned, it had gone and the lock was on the floor.

Police are appealing for information and released a photo of someone they would like to speak to in relation to the theft.

Anyone who can help should call police on 101.
