Police are using new tactics to capture bike thieves in Newark.

For the first time they're using 'bike bait' a cycle fitted with a tracker to catch anyone who steals it.

Last week a man found himself arrested after police left a bike with a tracker attached in the town centre.

Within hours they were able to track it down.
