Two motor cross bikes that were due to be used for a charity event have been stolen from West Hallam.

The Honda bikes were stolen between 2am and 6.30am on September 15 from a house in Hall Court.

Police believe they were wheeled down an alleyway between Hall Lane and Cock Orchard.

The owner of the bikes was due to take part in a charity bike ride for ovarian cancer in October and would like to locate the bikes so he can still raise money and take part in the event.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Malcolm Atherton at Ilkeston police station on 101.

The following day two bikes were stolen from a garage in Station Road in Long Eaton.

The bikes were an 07-plate KTM 250 EXC and a 60-plate KTM 300 EXC. One of the bikes has distinctive designs and bears the word ‘Skon’ in several places, while the other has an orange frame and a yellow front plate.
