Islington LBC and the Metropolitan Police Service in Islington are running the first trial in London of a prototype ground anchor designed to reduce motorcycle and scooter theft.

As part of Operation Arrow - a home office crime reduction initiative to reduce autocrime across Islington, Camden and Southwark - Islington Borough Police provided the council with 30 telescopic ground anchors which have been installed in two motorcycle bays in Clerkenwell, central London.

The square-sectioned, hardened steel anchor is simply pulled out of its sleeve in the ground enabling the rider to chain their machine to it.

The anchors have been installed as part of a three-month trial to test their effectiveness in reducing motorcycle theft which has increased sharply in London over the past few years.
