Clara Price, who works at Hellesdon Hospital and lives in a flat on Christchurch Road, noticed the adapted black Ammaco bike was missing from a communal gardens on Sunday morning.

The 25-year-old said: "I am missing three fingers from my left hand which means I can't reach the brake. My bike was adapted so that the brake is on the right hand side. I couldn't believe it was stolen at first but then the realisation hit. I'm just angry and upset."

The bike was bought six years ago when the University of Anglia graduate wanted to save money on travel and help the environment.

She said: "It gave me freedom. I had an interview recently and without my bike the journey was difficult."
