A PRESCHOOL has thanked the Mercury after youngsters' stolen bikes were returned following an article about their theft in the paper.
Earlybirds Preschool in The Hayes, Cheddar, had two small bicycles stolen from its shed in April worth about £120.
A member of the public spotted youths playing with one of the bikes and challenged them, forcing them to admit it was not theirs and hand it over.
The other was spotted by a parent and taken to the police station.
A spokesman for the preschool said: “Both vehicles have now been returned and the children are very happy to have them back.”
