Kevin Houghton, 26, said his bike, a Yamaha WR 125, was taken at approximately 12.30am on Saturday (November 23) from an address on Bluebell Meadow in Gorleston.

He and his partner were asleep but were woken up by their neighbour who had seen a person take off with the motorbike.

Mr Houghton bought the bike a year ago with money left to him by his grandmother.

"When my nan passed away, I got some inheritance and put that towards the bike," he said.
