A woman is appealing to the public to help trace her bike after it was stolen last week.

Alexandra Slater was left "devastated" after her bike was stolen in Wimbledon Village on March 25.

The incident was reported to have taken place at around 12.10 pm outside Tesco Express on Wimbledon Hill Rd.

It is believed that her Brompton bike has since been spotted on an online market place under several listings.

Speaking to Wimbledon Times, Alexandra said: "Brenda my Brompton, is not just a bike, she's part of my DNA, I have had her years and years, we've had so many adventures together including whizzing around the World Brompton Championships 2017 and also World Nake Bike ride.

Wimbledon Times:

"She's been with me through thick and thin, all the ups and downs and most recently she has helped me to get over losing my job 12-year office job before Christmas due to the pandemic.

"I have cycled nearly every single day on that bike to keep my spirits up since and can honestly say that pedalling on her has saved me several times, I just can’t believe someone would do this, she has huge sentimental value to me and is an iconic bike by her features.

It’s been a really tough few months and I always try to bounce back and keep strong and then this happens.

"Please, please if you know who did this or have any information just return her, I just want her back where she belongs.

"No questions asked just give her back to me."
