A COLLEGE student who bought a motorbike with the money left to him in his dad's will has had his pride and joy stolen.
When Che Hebson of St Michael's Avenue, Worle was given the cash, it was with specific instructions to buy his first car or bike with it.
But all that was ripped away from him last Monday when his motocross bike was stolen from the front of his friend's house, off Whitecross Road in Weston.
The 16-year-old former Priory Community School pupil, who is currently studying on a mechanics course at Bridgwater College, was so devastated the money left to him by his dad when he died in 2003 has been wasted.
