A couple have been left ‘devastated’ by a burglary at their Moreton Hall home.
A motorbike and four road bikes worth £12,000 were stolen from a locked garage in Daisy Avenue some time between 10pm on Tuesday and 6am on Wednesday.
“We’ve got a nice house in a nice area of town and you don’t expect this sort of thing to happen,” said the woman homeowner, who did not want to be named.
The items taken include a red and white Triumph Speed Triple motorbike, a black Museeuu MF-1 ladies racing bike, which was used to complete a 100-mile charity bike ride at the weekend, and three mens bikes – a metallic blue Colnago Dream racing bike, a dark grey Boardman Team Hybrid and a black Boardman Pro mountain bike.
The motorbike is described as rare, with only a limited number of bikes painted with the same scheme.
The couple were alerted to the thefts by a neighbour who noticed that their garage door had been forced open.
The homeowner said: “We’re absolutely devastated.
“They were our pride and joy. You work so hard to get all the nice things you want and somebody goes and does that to you.”
She added: “We’re desperate to get this stuff back.”
Anyone with information should call police on 101.
