Father Scott Thompson said his son Cole’s £450 Voodoo Bantu mountain bike was stolen whilst he was at Downham Market Academy on Wednesday, February 13.

“The CCTV shows the bike being taken at 12:35, but image is not clear enough for the police to get an identity,” said Mr Thompson, from Downham.

“The bike was his 12th birthday present six months ago and he is totally devastated, it was his pride and joy the day before I had posted photos of him on it getting totally covered in mud loving every minute of it.

“He uses the bike for everything, it is now half term and he has no bike. I hope the individual knows how much heart-ache he has caused this 12-year-old.”
