A Victorian tricycle used by Kelly Brook at the official launch of this year's Sky Ride launch in London has been stolen from a Leicester charity.

The tricycle, owned by Cyclemagic, was taken after thieves smashed down a door to gain access to the firm's premises in the centre of Leicester.

Also taken were thousands of pounds worth of modern bicycles and computer equipment including a laptop with the first draft of a book on early cycling history being written by Cyclemagic director and co-founder, Roger Lovell.

Founded ten years ago, Cyclemagic is one of the UK's leading community cycling projects and the hiring out of historic and uncommon machines for media work helps to raise vital funds for the organisation's cycling project for people with special needs.
