Dozens of limited edition triathlon bikes worth a total of a quarter of a million pounds have been stolen after a show at the Excel Centre.

The goods belonging to Yeovil firm TRI UK, were in two vans parked at the nearby Travelodge that were taken away at 2am on Monday morning.

A reward of £100,000 is being offered for information to the theft which took place after the London Bike Show at the weekend.

One of the vans was traced to Newham Way after the incident but was then lost. The other has not been traced at all.

Partner at TRI UK, Alison Boon, told Bikebiz.com: "All leads are being passed over to the Police and Tri UK are still hoping some of these bikes will show up - especially the more rare ones."

The vehicles are described as white Ford Transit Luton Box vans with green 'Dorset Vehicle Rentals' signs on the side.
