A boy is 'devastated' after his bike was stolen from a school.

Camilla Jolly's son Elias, eight, was given the BMX bike for his last birthday.

He left it at the bike shed at Bure Valley School in Aylsham last weekend.

Mrs Jolly said: "It was taken between Friday, February 28 and Monday, March 2. He left it inside the bike shed. The school said it was the first time a bike had been stolen from there.

"It's a BMX We the People bike, worth about £300. Elias is devastated.
