They forced the garage door open and stole the bikes, as well as tools and four Citroen Saxo Vtr wheels.

Dawn Hirst said her husband, Jonathan, found the items had been taken when he got up for work.

She said: “As a family we are keen cyclists and my son Aaron often goes on weekend mountain bike trips.

“A lot of work and money has gone into these bikes and most have custom parts.
