A SCHOOLGIRL has been left heartbroken after callous thieves stole her bike.

Natasha Fellgett (cor), aged 12, had been given the blue mountain bike on her birthday and had signed up to take part in cycling proficiency lessons at her school, Murrayfield.

But her mother Amanda went to check the shed at the rear of their home in Kings Way, Ipswich, to find the bike had been stolen.

She was forced to tell a gutted Natasha that thieves had stolen her cherished bike as she picked her up from school on Friday.

Mum of five Amanda said: "It's not like we can just go out and get another bike. They get presents like this on birthdays and Christmas only.

"But I know how upset she must be. She really liked her cycling. We had only just started to left her out on the road by herself and I could notice when she cycled home from school that she was learning very fast.

"We have told the police and I just hope it turns up. She really loved that bike and will really miss it."

Amanda and her partner Glenn Day have looked all around the area to see if they can find the bike.

Glenn said: "I have looked everywhere. I thought that it would be a good idea to go to a few bicycle shops and see if maybe they had been offered the bike on the cheap, but they had not.

"I may also try and go to a few car boot sales and see if it turns up there. I just know that Natasha is really upset."

Natasha said: "When my Mum told me I couldn't believe it. I'm really really upset that someone could do this."

Natasha had even taken the step of getting her bike coded with her postcode – IP3 9EU – so that it will be easy to trace and return should somebody find it.

If you know where the bike is, or have any information, call Suffolk Police on 01473 613500.
