Chance Recovery In Wandsworth

Chance Recovery In Wandsworth

A woman from Wandsworth has had her stolen bike recovered to her by Met Police after she spotted it, by chance, whilst out riding on another bike.

Sophie Gosling from Wandsworth was devastated when her black Specialized Secteur bike was stolen last summer but when she was out and about on another bike she happened to see her stolen one locked up under
a bridge at Balham.

Sophie called the police who were unable to cut the lock off themselves as it was too strong. They arranged for a builder to come with an angle grinder to remove the lock.

Sophie said she found the whole thing ‘very exciting’ and is pleased to have her £800 bike back.
