The BikerBiker group has been set up by Shane McDonald and operates via a public Facebook group. So far, the group claims to have returned many bikes to owners, as well as having a long list of thieves under scrutiny – including the case of the MT-07 rider whose shocking video recorded the thieves at work.

BikerBiker founder and leader McDonald said: “We have names, faces and addresses and will be handing over our evidence to the police.
“Most of our work involves patrolling areas of London, looking for signs of bike theft. If we see something untoward we try to make it as difficult for bike thieves as possible. Sometimes just having a presence or making a song and dance is enough to put the thieves off.”
