A BICYCLE was stolen from a charity shop and its owners are asking the public for help.

Between 3.30pm and 6pm on Saturday, September 16, a Carrera Fury Limited Edition bicycle was taken from The Salvation Army's forecourt in Salt Lane.

The bicycle, which was locked up, has a distinctive stainless steel and bright orange frame with colour-keyed tyres.

It had been recently cleaned and checked over by volunteers so the tyres will still be shiny.

Captain Martin Davison left at 3.30pm and returned to put the bikes away at 6pm, he said: "They are all locked and I guess the thieves came with bolt cutters as we now have upgraded locks since the last incident in 2022.

"I feel sorry most for our volunteers who have put so much dedicated effort and time into renovating and cleaning the bikes.

"I also reflect that overall, we do really well with this initiative, and, these incidents are rare and are massively out- weighed by the goodwill of our community who support us so well."

The Carrera was bought new for £800 a few years ago and the charity was selling it for £275.
