A Letchworth man has been left “utterly disgusted” after his push bike – which he relies heavily on to get to work – was stolen.

Ashley Wilkins, who works at Sainsbury’s on Third Avenue as a baker, says his “safety is being put at risk” as he now has to walk to his job during the early hours of the morning.

The 23-year-old told the Comet: “I feel utterly disgusted with whoever stole my bike.

“It has cause me a great deal of stress when going to and from work, due to having to start at 3am – the person who stole it has put my safety at risk.”

Ashley is still paying off the cost of the mountain bike – a black Trek Marlin 6 2018 – that was stolen from the front of Sainsbury’s on Wednesday.

Tracy Jordan-Hare, Ashley’s mum said: “He has said the bike is like his wife, he loves it.

“He works so hard for his money to have someone do this to him is a disgrace. I hope whoever has done this just brings it back.”

A police spokeswoman has said that all lines of enquiry have now been exhausted by officers and the investigation is finalised.

However, if there is new information in the future, it will be fully investigated.
