A hard working cook at a Southport town centre was left fuming after finding his ride home had been stolen while he worked.

The chef was stunned to find his beloved bike had been swiped from a bike shed at Ocean Plaza on Sunday evening.

His bike, an expensive GT Mountain bike had been swiped from the bike bay on the shopping park after thieves broke through a protective bike lock.

The bike was taken between 4pm and 11.30pm on Sunday 13th September and despite CCTV being available in the area, it’s understood the thieves were not caught on camera.

He is now appealing for any help in finding the stolen bike and anyone with information should message OTS News.
