"I am absolutely gutted for him. The bike was his Christmas and birthday present it was almost £400. I work as a caterer and raise two children by myself. It is a lot of money to lose. I am livid.

"The bike has been stolen before from town but the police caught the lads, and charged them, now it has been stolen again, I can't help but think maybe they are connected.

"Please if anyone knows anything or if someone has it, just leave it somewhere for us to find."

The bike is bright green.
