The leader of the UK's Conservative Party had his bike stolen earlier today. Nearly 20,000 bikes are stolen in London every year.
I was cycling home and stopped to pick up some things for supper. I chained the bike through the wheel then put it around one of those bollard things. I have reported it using the police’s new online facility but I’m not expecting to get it back any time soon.A Conservative spokesman remarked:
Obviously David is quite hacked off by the theft of his bike, especially having locked it up.
