A man whose partner is expecting their first child faces having to fork out for a new bike to get to work on after thieves stole his – on Christmas Day.

Matthew Hatton, 24, of Melton, discovered his £400 mountain bike, which was locked and chained to railings outside their home in Beck Mill Lane, had been stolen at 6.30am.

The 24-year-old green-keeper at Melton Mowbray Golf Club used it every day to cycle to the club, between Thorpe Arnold and Waltham on the Wolds.

Partner Emma Grice, 22, whose baby is due in June, said: "We work very hard for our belongings and I can only assume someone's stolen it as a gift or to sell on.

"I hope they're happy and had a lovely Christmas, as all we've been worrying about is how to afford a new one."

Matthew said: "It wasn't insured and I'm going to have to replace it at a time when we've got a baby on the way. It's not going to be easy."

Anyone with information on the theft of the white Correra Mountain bike or its whereabouts is asked to contact police on 101.
