A local dad has thanked the community for coming together after his sons bicycle was stolen.

4 year old Cooper’s beloved bike was stolen from Church Street last night at around 6.30pm.

After his parents posted on Facebook page Spotted Torquay yesterday evening, offers of help rolled in…

And today, less than 24 hours later, Cooper was out on his new bike!
