Nadia's mother Paula Sparkes posted on Facebook to say that three bikes had been stolen from their home in Hellesdon on Monday night - including Nadia's, which she uses to collect rubbish on her cycle ride to school.

In the post, which was shared on the Team Trash Girl Facebook page and includes pictures of the three bikes, Mrs Sparkes appealed for anyone who may have seen the bikes "dumped" anywhere to get in touch.

Speaking to BBC Radio Norfolk, Nadia, 13, said her bike was "very important to me".

She added: "If you know where my bike is or you know who took my bike, please tell them to give it back or get it back, or call the police."
