Not so easy rider: Chatteris TV extra has ‘pride and joy’ 1952 Triumph Bonneville stolen
A FILM and TV extra has slammed the “opportunistic muppets” who stole his pride and joy - a classic motorcycle - and collectable car parts.
Anthony “Budge” Steers is a familiar face on EastEnders and recently worked on the latest Sherlock Holmes film.
But thieves broke into a shed at his home in High Street, Chatteris, and stole a 1952 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle, a high rise manifold and aluminium sump for his Chevrolet Corvette car and some aluminium wheels.
Mr Steers said: “I walked in and thought something’s missing. Then it hit me, my Bonne’s gone.
“It was quite flabbergasting to see the audacity of the thieves.”

The break-in happened some time between 6pm on October 24 and 6pm last Thursday. The bike was customed with a Harley Davidson tank and low rider frame.
Mr Steers said: “They ripped open the (garage) door but there are other easier ways to get in. They must have just thought ‘let’s have a look in here and take whatever’s inside’.”

Mr Steers has lived in Chatteris for nearly 25 years but says he won’t be for much longer.
The 57-year-old was planning on selling the bike to let someone else ride it, because he hasn’t ridden it for a couple of years due to ill-health.
However, he said: “I wasn’t planning on just giving it away.”
