A PAPER boy has been left devastated after his £400 mountain bike was swiped as he picked up his round at the newsagents in Leverstock Green Village Centre.

Peter Clark, 16, of Brickfield Avenue in Hemel Hempstead, left the bike unlocked for moments at 6.45am on January 11.

To add insult to injury the bike was a replacement for another stolen on his birthday three years ago.

His mum Helen said: “He is pretty cheesed off.”
