Callous thieves struck a flood-hit bike shop in Todmorden and stole a collection of bikes thought to be worth around £20,000.

Police say the Cycle Factory, Der Street, fell victim to burglars at some point between 4pm on December 27 and 8.30am on December 28.

It’s thought the thieves entered through a rear fire door, before making off with nine bikes.

A statement on the Cycle Factory Facebook page read: “Struggling for words here we got flooded on Saturday as did a lot of people.

“Last night we were robbed by the scum of the earth praying on flood victims.”

The bikes stolen were:
