Worker sees bike stolen.

A BICYCLE thief struck at an industrial estate in Nuneaton.

A worker saw a cyclist ride into a firm's car park and grab the handlebars of another bike before riding off with the stolen machine in tandem.

The worker had left his bike outside SW Storage and Packaging Ltd, in Kelsey Close, at Attleborough Fields.

A police spokeswoman said: "He then saw a man ride in on a pushbike, get hold of his Claude Butler bike and ride off with it in tow out of Kelsey Close."

The theft happened at 1.45pm on Tuesday. The thief is described as 6ft 1in, white, and in his late 20s or early 30s. He was wearing a baseball cap, dark trousers and a navy blue coat. Witnesses are asked to ring police on 024 7664 1111.
