Ben Sheppard, the owner of the mountain bike that was stolen earlier this week, has written in to thank the IW Observer and its readers for sharing his plea to have his prized bike returned.

Speaking from his Carisbrooke home, Ben exclaimed: “Massive thank you to you mate, my bike has been returned. Absolutely buzzing. The bike that was stolen from a van in Carisbrooke has been returned!”

Over ten thousand Islanders have shared the appeal for Ben’s bike to be returned.
