The youth was among those arrested and charged following the theft of the motor bike on Sunday night.

The bike belonged to a local factory worker who had saved £1,500 to buy the Suzuki but had only passed his test earlier this month so that he could take it on the road.

“To say I’m gutted is an understatement,” he said. “I’ve got the bike back but it’s a write off. I’ll now have to discuss with the insurance company where we go from here.”

Police confirmed the theft of the bike from a driveway in Boyces Road at around 10.30pm on Sunday.
