Black ladies' "Dutch style" electric bike stolen from Balham

Some lovely thieves stole our electric bike from our front patio in broad daylight from Balham on Friday afternoon between 5 and 6pm. It's very distinctive (not many of them) like this, in case you see it. Thank you.

They are purely after your money (he's the UK's highest paid doctor at about £25million!). You never see the main...

Don't use Centurion Construction/Jonathan Spencer for building

Briefly, had a loft done by them. All started off well as usual; an 8 week job turned into a 5 month job because they disappeared, sent one man instead of 4 etc. Their attention to detail on finishing was a joke.
