A security message issued to residents read: “Hertfordshire Police Department has asked motorcyclists to secure their bikes following an increase in thefts in recent months.
“More than 120 motorcycles have been stolen across the county in the last three months, with most crime occurring in the Welwyn Hatfield, Watford, Hartsmere and St Albans areas.”
