Millom citizen presented with hamper following theft
Published on 03/01/2013

A disabled gentlemen from Millom in Cumbria who had a bag of groceries stolen has been presented with a food hamper by members of the local community.

Ian Tweedley was the victim of a petty crime just before Christmas after thieves took his shopping from the front of his trike-style motorbike, the North West Evening Mail reports.

As a result, police officers replaced his missing items and representatives from the Millom Bike Group gave the 52-year-old a selection of food gifts and a new motorcycle helmet.

Chairman of the body Bill Jones told the news provider: "We just wanted to make sure he had a nice hamper of food to enjoy on new year."

Mr Tweedley suffered serious injuries following a motorcycle accident in France 20 years ago and said his Christmas had been miserable until the police brought him replacement groceries.

The man thanked officers for their kindness and said they had given him brussel sprouts, biscuits and "all sorts".

At the beginning of December, an elderly citizen from Merseyside was also treated to a luxury hamper by policemen after being attacked.
