PC Meghan Booysen, from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This was a heartless crime, stealing from a child, and I am urging any witnesses or anyone with information about the incident to get in touch.

“The bike is distinctive and I am hopeful that someone may have seen it. If you have seen it, or you think you have been offered it for sale, please get in touch by calling the non-emergency number 101 or email me at meghan.booysen@herts.pnn.police.uk quoting crime reference 41/82164/20.”

You can register your bike at bikeregister.com, a national property database that police use to check stolen property.
