Boy head over wheels for his new bike

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

BIG-HEARTED shop own­ers put the smile back on the face of a city school­boy by re­plac­ing his stolen bike with a brand new one.

Af­ter read­ing of how Jake Bishop (12) had had his beloved BMX bike pinched by thieves, co-owner of Cot­ton TV, Den­nis Cot­ton, was moved to help.

Mr Cot­ton, who runs a TV and video rental busi­ness in Oun­dle Road, Peter­bor­ough, even went as far as buy­ing an ex­act replica of the bike.

Jake’s mum Jac­que­line, of Ellindon, Bret­ton, was touched by the ges­ture.

She had ap­pealed in the ET for the re­turn of her son’s bike, which was stolen as he played with friends at Bret­ton skate park on May 25.

She said: “I’m gob­s­macked. There are some re­ally nice peo­ple out there. It’s re­stored my faith in hu­man na­ture.”
