Pole-wielding builders see bike thieves off

BIKE thieves are now more dangerous than ever before. 

But they're still no match for a British brickie - or three - as the video below shows. 

Shared by PistonAddicz on Facebook on Monday, with the caption 'Builders vs bike thieves...', it shows four bike thieves legging it - abandoning their stolen rides - when faced with a scaffolding pole-weilding builder. 

Two more builders join their mate to see the thieves off, in CCTV footage which appears to been filmed back in July. The identity of the builders and location remains unknown. 

Facebook user Mel Ward congratulated the brave trio: 'Well done guys pity you couldn't retain them'.
