On Saturday I found a bike. Not a particularly valuable bike (probably a few hundred quids worth) but clearly someone's pride and joy. Judging by the extensive use of stickers- a 14 year olds pride and joy! Phone the Police. Their response "can you recover it, we'll be in touch". Now our part of the world isn't exactly known for its crime levels (local police station has half day closing on Wednesdays) so I thought they'd come around collect the bike and say "thankyou".
Today there is a message on the answerphone, "bike now has a lost property number, if not claimed withon 2 weeks please dispose of it how you want".
They couldn't care less could they?
Bike was clearly nicked by a drunk wanting to get home and dumped in a field. I've posted a message on our village facebook page asking if anyone has lost a bike... Any other ideas of how to reunite bike with its owner?
