A bike belonging to a Special Olympics road race champion from Barnstaple has been stolen.
Daniel Weston won a gold medal in Abu Dhabi earlier this year, and is due to race at the Great Britain Nationals in less than two months.
The bike, worth more than £3,000, is Daniel's 'lifeline' according to his family.
It's his lifeline, it's his independence.
Daniel has autism and lives independently, working as a commis chef in the kitchen at the Barnstaple Hotel.
He says he is devastated about losing his bike, something he uses to aide his independence.
I use it for racing and doing time trials and I use it for road racing.
