UPDATE: Police find Tyler’s bike

‘Pride and joy’ stolen from rear of Honiton Youth Centre.

A BMX bike, described as a teenager’s “pride and joy”, has been reunited with its owner - thanks to police.

Tyler Morrell, 17, left the white FitBike TRL 3 outside Honiton Youth Centre last Saturday while he attended an event in Exeter.

It was gone when he returned.

As Tyler made an appeal for the bike to be returned, a police officer spotted it in a hedge and took it to Honiton Police Station.
