THIS is the man British Transport Police want to speak to over the theft of a charity cyclist’s bicycle.

The red Muddy Fox bike was taken from Havant railway station bike shed on August 1 at around 6.40pm.

Owner Michael Prowting, 18, bought the £300 mountain bike for a 100-mile ride between Bournemouth and Brighton football clubs.

He did it for The Rowans Hospice which had cared for his grandfather Raymond Galmoye and raised £760.

PC Andy Bolton, the investigating officer, said Mr Prowting left his bike locked at 3.15pm.

He said ‘Later on in the day, around 11pm, he returned to the station to collect his bike and discovered it had been stolen.

‘An investigation has been launched and we would like to hear from any members of the public with information about the incident, or who can identify the man pictured.’
