Data shows that a quarter of the city's Bee Bikes have gone missing and not been found since the launch of the scheme last November.

Environmental Information Regulation (EIR) data obtained by the Manchester Evening News shows that of the 201 Bee Bikes active in Greater Manchester up to 23 June, 58 have gone missing and have not been retrieved.

This is equivalent to just over a quarter of the bikes in operation. Figures also show that there have been 306 incidents of damaged and subsequently repaired bikes since the start of the scheme - this is equivalent to each bike being damaged and repaired 1.5 times.
