The bicycle ridden by Norfolk triathlete Chrissie Wellington in winning the Ironman World Championships in 2011 has been stolen.

The white Cannondale Slice bike is worth several thousands of pounds and was taken from her cousin's office at Chessington in London.

The 37-year-old, from Feltwell, took to Twitter to appeal for the bike to be returned.

She says the bike has great sentimental value and is desperate to have it back.

"I named it Phoenix because we rose from the ashes. It means so much to me."

She has posted CCTV of the theft on Youtube.
