POLICE are holding free bike-marking events to help owners protect their property from thieves.

Residents can get their bikes marked with a unique, tamper-proof code at one of a series of sessions in Portsmouth.

Officers from Hilsea Safer Neighbourhoods Team will be at the Mountbatten Centre, off Twyford Avenue, Stamshaw, from 10am to noon on Saturday or 5pm to 7pm on February 24.

Alternatively visit officers from Portsmouth’s city centre unit in Commercial Road on March 9 or April 11 from 10am to 4pm.
