The bike was a special Christmas presents brought by his grandparents.

Ms Smith said: "I was angry with him for not locking it up but more than that I am disgusted that people take the attitude 'it's lying there so I can have it.'"

Anyone who has seen the bike or has information should call Suffolk police on 01473 613500.
