BIKE HEIST

CROOKS cut through a concrete wall to steal a £35,000 superbike in a Hatton Garden-style heist.

The thieves placed the 180mph Ducati Panigale V4R against a wall to gauge the hole’s size.

They selected a spot under the stairs to avoid the shop’s sensors after breaking in through the youth club next door.

It is thought they used disc cutters and power tools to slice through the 12-inch thick concrete.

Steve Moore, 44, owner of Moto Rapido Ducati in Winchester, Hants, said: “It’s mad. I’ve never seen anything like it.

“I came in and there was this big hole in the side of the wall. It had been done quite well.

“It’s like a bank job but with a motorbike.”

The 100mph-in-six-seconds red Italian superbike had been sold and was ready for collection.

Police are investigating.
