'We hunt down stolen bikes in our free time'

Martin and Dom got into the motorbike recovery game by accident. Dom saw a couple of lads pass his house on a bike and decided to ring Martin and fetch it. They got hold of the owner and reunited him with his bike. "It was a really good feeling as it was his lifeline," says Dom. Now they work with police helping track down stolen bikes around South Bristol. Their aim is to eventually "not be needed" but they say until there is funding to help young people learn new skills and give them a purpose, Martin and Dom will keep doing what they do.
