Police are appealing for information after an electric bicycle was stolen from a person caring for an elderly resident in Skegness.

The owner of the bike parked it outside Alexandra Court flats between 5pm and 5.30pm yesterday. He was approached three times by a man asking questions about the bike and, when he returned to collect it, he discovered that it had been taken.

The bicycle in the picture is identical to the stolen one, apart from the wheels. It has BMX size wheels and can fold away for storage.

If anyone has any information about the theft, or knows of anyone who is selling a bike matching this description, they are asked to contact PC Dan Healey by calling 101 and quoting incident number 335 of 6th July.
