Jeremy Vine posts video of attempted motorbike theft

Brazen attempt to steal motorbikes by four scooter riders

RADIO host Jeremy has uploaded this CCTV footage of an ‘attempt to steal motorbikes’ from outside his neighbour’s home in Chiswick, west London, at 5am.

The clip shows four riders pull up on two scooters before two of them begin removing the covers from three parked motorcycles.

The pillion passenger of the first scooter, wearing a high-vis jacket, pulls the cover off a motorcycle parked in a garden on the opposite side of the street. The rider does the same to two bikes parked in the road.

Having partially exposed each bike, the four then ride off again.

The riders of the second scooter don't dismount. They're on what appears to be a maxi scooter, possibly a Yamaha TMAX. The first vehicle is a smaller-capacity scooter.

BBC Radio 2 presenter Vine uploaded the clip on his YouTube channel yesterday and Tweeted: ‘Ten doors down from my house yesterday, at 5am, the most brazen attempt to steal motorbikes I've ever seen.’

He later added: ‘Amazing that we now have a situation in London where thieves wear HI-VIZ clothing.’

He told the Evening Standard: ‘What amazes me is just how brazen this is. They are in no rush at all.’
