A spokesperson for FRESH said: “Please get in touch if you have any information at all, the bike belongs to our café owner and is her only mode of transport from Mepal to Ely. 

“Additionally, another bike was left here (the one they are riding in the picture) and we assume it was stolen too.  

“Please get in touch if you have had a bike stolen recently - it's more of a teenager's/child's bike. We will keep it safe until the owner is found. 

“We know the Ely community can do wonderful things so we're crossing our fingers and toes we can get return everything to their rightful owners.”
