The bicycle, which was taken from Spring Bank island on Kirkby Road in Sutton, is believed to have been stolen late on Friday evening or early hours of Saturday morning.

Council staff noticed it was missing while driving through the area early on Satuday August 19.

A council spokeswoman said: "It was reported stolen after council members noticed it was no longer there. We think it might have been taken by a reveller. We will be replacing it but if anybody spots it, it would be lovely if it did make its way back."
