A father-of-four left severely injured in a kite-surfing accident has been left devastated after his only form of transport was stolen .

Jason Le Masurier would take his seven-year-old son Jack to school every day on a specially adapted trailer bike.

But now Jason, who can’t drive due to the injuries he suffered in 2007, will struggle to take his son anywhere in or out of school as the bike, worth £300, has been stolen.

Jason, of Lodges Grove in Bare, said: “I do feel like it’s not fair. I’m visually impaired and its my main form of transport.

“I use it on and off all the time. It is quite unusual because the trailer attaches to a bracket on the bike.

“I’ll find some way to get my son to school but I can’t drive .

“It makes ma angry and makes me feel like I don’t want to live round here any more.

“We moved to the house in 2010 and thought it was a safe area. It’s not the monetary value because it looks pretty old and battered, not the sort of thing you want to steal.

“For me its very valuable because its my only transport. My son was very upset when we came out of the door and found it wasn’t there.”

Jason was told by doctors he would never walk again after the accident in 2007, but he defied the odds and after spending two years in hospital, was able to walk again.

Police said they had received a report of a stolen hybrid pushbike and a child’s trailer worth £300.

It was taken overnight from Lodges Grove between March 15 and 16.Call police on 101 with any information.
