Police are appealing for witnesses and information following the theft of a distinctive bicycle.

The bike, which was locked and secured, was stolen from outside Tesco in Oldings Corner, between 4.30pm and 4.40pm on Friday, January 22.

It is described as a Ghost SE 13000 Special Edition, with customised red detailing on the wheels and under the handlebars.

PC Tia Lambert, who is investigating, said: “This bicycle is quite distinctive and relatively rare, so I am hoping anyone who has come across it over the weekend may remember doing so.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed someone acting suspiciously around the bike outside Tesco on Friday afternoon. If you have any information which could assist us, please get in touch.”
