A CYCLIST was left devastated when her beloved bike, which she had just ridden 25 miles to a job interview - was stolen.

Pedal powered Amanda Terrington is unemployed and was cycling from her home in Hertfordshire in hopes of landing an internship at a company in Barking.

She had travelled for over two hours in the rain when she finally reached Tescos in Highbridge Road.

But when Amanda emerged from the toilets to her dismay she found her Dawes Discovery 701 was gone.

Amanda said: "I don't drive so my bike is my car and I ride it everywhere.

"Without it I'm completely lost. These thieves have no sense of value."

Staff at the store saw a ginger haired youth, in his early 20's, cycling away from the scene carrying a bike on his shoulder.

A black youth was riding next to him; the two disappeared in the direction of Abbey Green.

Police obtained CCTV footage of the two thieves from Tesco however Amanda is yet to hear anything about her bike.

It was 9.20am on Tuesday November 18 when Amanda stopped at the store.

If anyone has information about her bike please call the POST on 020 8709 0013.
