Derbyshire Police are asking if anyone has seen a distinctive pink scooter after it was taken from Stenson Fields earlier this month.

The force has issued the above picture of a similar scooter in the hope that it will jog someone’s memory.

The pink ‘Direct Bikes’ scooter was stolen from the driveway of a house in Buckthorn Close between Sunday, January 1 and Saturday, January 6.

PCSO Kerry Wallington-Waite explained:

The scooter is very distinctive in that it is bright pink, it is the same as the one in the picture we have issued other than the stolen bike has some black stickers on the side panels.

If anyone saw anything suspicious on Buckthorn Close between these dates or knows where the scooter is now then please make contact with us.
