A mother has spoken of her son’s devastation after his motocross bikes were stolen from their garage.

Gemma Dalgliesh, of Hampden Park, said nine-year-old epilepsy sufferer Kai was ‘heartbroken’ when he discovered his bikes had been taken overnight.

She said, “My son found them missing on the way to school and was heartbroken. Leaving him to go to school like that was so horrible, he was crying his eyes out.

“He’s nine-years-old and suffers from epilepsy and other health conditions, his bikes are his life he enjoys them so much.”

She continued, “He’s had so much going on in his life. At the weekend he loves to go out on his bikes and forget about it all.

“No other garages got broken into so I think it’s someone that knows us.”

The garage in Acacia Road had been broken into between the hours of late Monday night (November 26) and early Tuesday morning (November 27).

The bikes which were taken were a blue Lucky MX 140cc and a 90cc Juice Box.

Gemma is hoping someone with CCTV in the area might be able to help them catch the culprits.

A spokesperson for Sussex Police said anyone with information can report it online or call 101 quoting serial 323 of 27/11.
