PCSO William Liddell, from the Dacorum Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The motorbike is a blue and white petrol Yamaha 124 CC.

“I am looking to hear from anybody who saw it between the times of 11pm on Friday, October 1 and 10pm on Saturday, October 2. Did you see the motorbike? Were you offered it for sale? If you think you saw it please get in touch.

“Similarly, I would like to hear from anyone who thinks they captured it on CCTV or dashcam. Please get in touch by calling the non-emergency number 101 or email me at [email protected] quoting crime reference 41/76607/21.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to remind motorcyclists of the steps they can take to help keep their bikes secure.

"Firstly, it is a good idea to always lock your bike to something secure – at home, fit special attachments such as ground loops to lock your bike to. I would also recommend using a motorbike cover – don’t advertise what you’ve got!

"Having the motorbike security marked with its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) may also give you peace of mind. For further tips visit our website at www.herts.police.uk/crimeprevention.”
