Update: Definitive Proof Of Dockless Bikes Chucked Into London's Rivers

We recently explored the possibility that some Londoners hadn't taken too kindly to the new dockless bikes populating the city's streets. Whenever we look on apps like Citymapper, there's another one in the Thames, or the canal, or one of London's other rivers.

There it is — a Mobike in the River Brent, in Hanwell. It looks so sad, wrapped up in a plastic bag in its watery grave. Meanwhile the Santander Cycles (or Boris Bikes, depending on your preference), sit safely in their (dry) docks.
