A Highbridge family has issued an appeal for help in finding a young child’s bike that has been stolen from their home.

A BMX 20” wheel blue bike was stolen from Stockley Road in Highbridge on Friday afternoon (August 31st) between 2-5pm.

It was locked up and a nine year-old boy was due to use it to get to school from this week.

Zoe Ashdown adds: “He only had it for his birthday two weeks ago. It was locked up in our car port but has now been stolen – you can imagine he is really upset.”

“The bike has a unique serial code on it so if it’s found we will know it’s the one we was looking for.”

Anyone with information about the location of the bike should contact Burnham-On-Sea.com here.
