There's some right scum about
too bone idle to work for the money to buy things for themselves ... far easier for the thieving rats to just take somebody else's stuff, usually someones pride and joy that they've taken ages to save for. Really sorry to hear about you having your bike nicked. One of our local community support officers was asking if we had seen anyone on a 'white Kona bike' and asking us to keep a look out yesterday.
I really do hope that you get it back. I will certainly keep an eye open in the area. A bike like that would stick out like a sore thumb in Egremont!
