Beware leaving your bicycle at Piccadilly – it is the worst rail station in the north for bike thefts.

Some 132 bicycles have been stolen from the station in the past five years – more than double any other station in Greater Manchester.

No other station in the north has seen more thefts than Piccadilly since 2011.
