A medal-winning London 2012 Paralympian has had her specialist bicycle stolen in Hampshire.

Lucy Shuker's bike and spare wheels were taken from a garage in Cranbrook Court, Fleet.

She is Britain's top ranked wheelchair tennis player and won bronze in the women's doubles last year.

She said: "I am very disappointed. This is a specific item for people with disabilities and would be of no interest to the general public."

Hampshire Constabulary is appealing for witnesses to a white transit van in the area during the burglary, which took place on Tuesday between 14:00 and 14:30 BST.
