Police have warned people to do their research when buying second hand motorbikes, after someone was duped into buying a stolen vehicle.

Police told how they spotted this stolen bike while on patrol in the Manor area yesterday.

Sheffield South East neighbourhood policing team posted: "Unfortunately for the gentleman who thought he had bought it legitimately, the bike turned out to be stolen.

"Please be careful when buying items privately and ensure you make the relevant checks first."
