The Cycle Factory in Todmorden has only been open three months. It was hit by the Boxing Day floods which submerged many homes and businesses in the town.

The owners had managed to salvage stock from the floodwaters but returned next day to find looters had taken nine bikes.

It's indescribable when you come in and find the place flooded and the huge clean up that's on and how low you feel about that. Then wake up the next morning and find out you have also been robbed and have lost so much salvageable stock that you have managed to save and keep safe. It's just heartbreaking.

Meanwhile on Tuesday, the clear-up operation was well underway across West Yorkshire.
