Stolen bike leaves teenager ‘devastated’
Teenager George Clarke has described his devastation at having a bike that belonged to his late father stolen.
The 19-year-old may not have had a cycle insurance policy as he told the Nottingham Post how he is not interested in the value of the two-wheeler, as it has a far greater sentimental worth.
Mr Clarke was given the bicycle when his father Paul died in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami in Thailand, which was caused by an earthquake under the Indian Ocean.
"It was the first thing of his given to me on my 12th birthday. If anyone has seen it or knows anything about it, I just want it back," he stated.
The bike was taken from a shed at Long Eaton train station despite being secured with two locks.
Having been constructed by the late Mr Clarke senior, the cycle features slim road tyres, a dark blue and grey frame, a navy gel seat and yellow illuminate paint around the inside alloy part of the wheels.
