Police want to speak to two men caught on newly-released CCTV in relation to the theft of a motor bike from a car park in Wapping.

The theft took place at around 7am on Saturday, September 10, but was only reported to the police on Tuesday (October 18).

The two men can be seen arriving at the carpark in Wapping High Street on a moped. Subsequently, the footage shows the two stopping by a parked motorbike.

The CCTV video released by Metropolitan Police earlier today (October 21) also appears to show the two men breaking the lock of the grey Suzuki motorbike, before pushing it out of the carpark and leaving the scene.

One man can be seen falling over with his legs swinging in the air during the burglary.

While no arrests have been made yet, police want to speak to the two men, or hear from anyone who recognises them, or anyone who witnessed the burglary.

The first man, seen with a black motorbike helmet, is wearing a navy jumper, light coloured jeans and black shoes.

The second man is described as white, and is wearing a navy jumper with a white logo, blue jeans and trainers, alongside a black and grey helmet.

Anyone with information useful for the investigation is asked to contact the Tower Hamlets CID via 101. Information can be given anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800555111.
