Motorbike and moped owners can get free advice on how to keep their vehicle safe at a drop-in centre in Tooting later in the month.

The police and the council’s community safety will be at the junction of Church Lane and Mitcham Road on July 27 between 3pm and 7pm.

According to the council: “There has been a rise in motorcycle thefts in Wandsworth over the past few months, but there are simple steps owners can take to avoid becoming a victim, including fitting alarms, locks and trackers and property-marking their vehicle.”
