A mum has condemned thieves who stole her three-year-old son’s mini motocross bike, worth £200.

Tracy Warner, 29, was shocked to discover that thieves had taken the yellow and blue Peewee 50 along with a pedal bike with stabilisers, belonging to her son Thomas, from her shed in Sarcel, Stisted, overnight between Friday and Saturday.

The mum-of-two said the theft has left her son devastated and he had been “crying his eyes out” since his bikes were stolen.

She said: “My husband went outside on Saturday morning and when he came back he said we had been burgled, I couldn’t believe it."
