A GANG of teenagers snatched a cyclist's bike during a broad daylight robbery outside a supermarket. 

Essex Police officers received reports of a mugging which took place between 11am and 12pm in Harwich on September 25.

The attack saw a man in his 20s approached by a group of four teenagers outside Morrisons, in Iconfield Park.

The victim was then shoved off his bike by one of the thugs.

They then stole the man's cycle before fleeing in the direction of McDonald's, in Williamsburg Avenue.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: "Can you help detectives?
