A BESPOKE property register was launched in Brighton on Tuesday to help protect Sussex’s cyclists from robbers.

Immobilise was launched at Churchill Square by Sussex Police Detective Chief Inspector Paul Betts and Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne.

Residents enter the details of their possessions on a free website – www.immobilise.com – and report it if items are stolen.

Police officers in Sussex and across the UK will then be able to check the details of any items they find or seize against the database and reunite them with their owners.

The county’s cyclists are being urged to register their bikes on the website.

More than 100,000 bicycles were stolen across the UK last year and less than 5% were returned to their owners.
