Disabled children’s bikes stolen from Welwyn Garden City school
VALUABLE play equipment for disabled children has been stolen.
Three cycles were taken from Lakeside School, Lemsford Lane, between 5.30pm on Friday, July 8 and 9am on Monday last week.
Thieves took two adult tricycles and one specially-adapted tricycle for disabled students.
One of the cycles has since been discovered in WGC.
Pcso Kate Blenkin said: “This is a selfish and callous act by individuals who have only thought of their own personal gain, and not the hugely detrimental impact on children at Lakeside.
