- Credit: AAA
A thief has caused heartbreak for a Canning Town charity working with disabled youngsters – by making off with a specialist trike.
The tricycle, which costs more than £1,500, was stolen from Ambition, Aspire, Achieve’s base at the Terence Brown Arc in Hermit Road Park.
“It is a bit of a blow to us, and completely unexpected, ” said founder Kevin Jenkins.
“We are hoping that this was an opportunist theft and the person who took it will have a conscience and return it.”
The bike, described as about eight to nine feet long with a basket on the back, was taken between 2pm and 3pm on Monday.

It is “extensively” used by disabled youngsters and “will take some time to replace”, added Kevin.
