An eight-year-old boy has been left ‘heartbroken’ after his bike was stolen.

Ewan Poole only rode the bike his parents bought him for his birthday last September six times because it was initially too big for him.

In the recent spate of good weather the family went out for a ride, and when they came back left it lying against the wall in their front garden in Rackheath.

On Saturday they realised the £180 yellow and black bike had disappeared.

Ewan’s dad Graeme Poole said: “He was inconsolable - he burst into tears.

“It’s just gutting that someone can just walk into your own drive and steal a kid’s bike of all things.

“I know it’s our fault for leaving it out but still.

“We’ve lived here around 13 years without trouble but recently there’s been three bike thefts in the area.”

DC Kim Taylor described Ewan as heartbroken and asked those with information to call police on 101.
