A CYCLIST has launched an appeal to trace her bright orange mountain bike after it was stolen from Ormskirk Hospital while she was attending an appointment.
Margaret Biggs, 70, from Churchtown, who is an amputee, cycled from her home to the hospital on Friday, October 23. But she was left ‘appalled, shocked and furious’ when her TREK mountain bike, worth around £1,200, was stolen while she was only inside the hospital for 30 minutes, with the thieves cutting through her bike lock.
She said: “Please keep a look out for it. It’s bright orange so easily seen. I was furious and I had to get a taxi home!
“The stolen bike is only two years old - it’s a treasured beauty. It has a hard tail small size aluminimum frame with front shocks, double front chain ring, hub disk brakes, ladies’ gel saddle, short mudguards, safety lights, silver double sided cleat pedals, rear bag rack, front bag holder, and mobile phone holder.”
A spokesperson for Lancashire Constabulary confirmed that an investigation is ongoing. If you have any information, call 101 quoting log 871 of October 23.
