A number of items were stolen during the burglary, including a custom bicycle and a number of sporting medals. Officers from Carlton and Gedling Neighbourhood Policing Teams recovered the bike during a search of a property in the St Ann’s area.

However, the medals are still missing and we are keen to reunite them with their owner. The medals (pictured), which are of sentimental value, were won at European Championships and World Championships between 2000 and 2014.

Sgt Luke Todd, from the Gedling Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “These medals are completely irreplaceable to the person who won them and we want to make sure they are returned to their rightful owners as soon as possible.

They are very distinctive and I would urge anyone who may have seen them available to buy, or been offered them, to call us on 101 quoting incident 167 of 24 January, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

The medals stolen include two gold medals (European Championships), five silver medals (European Championships), six bronze medals (European Championships) and two bronze World Championship medals.
