AN Ipswich woman is appealing for the return of a bike after callous thieves left her with no transport to get to work.

Angela Mills, 52, of Coronation Road, California, told The Evening Star she is furious that a group of youths made off with her locked bike from outside her workplace, Sainsbury's in Warren Heath.

Mrs Mills said she is now forced to walk 45 minutes to work because it was her only form of transport after selling her car when she lost her previous job.

To make matters worse the bike, which was a white, green and pink mountain bike, is not owned by Mrs Mills - it was lent to her by a friend.

She said: “I'm angry because I was having to walk to work five times a week but a friend helped me out by giving me her bike.

“Now it has been stolen I have to walk again.

“I also can't visit my family who live on the outskirts of Ipswich.

“I just want them to return the bike so I can get around again. They have made my life so difficult.”

The theft happened between noon and 4pm on July 16. Three boys were caught on CCTV stealing the bike.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Pc Marcus Dale at the Colneis Peninsula safer neighbourhood team on 01473 613500 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
