Police in Ballymena have reunited an 80-year-old local woman with her bicycle after it was stolen during a burglary in the town.

The bike was recovered after police officers searched the home of a known offender who was arrested and charged with a burglary offence in the town.

Officers checked the bike over and brought it back to its delighted, rightful owner last Wednesday. They then took to Twitter to share a photo of the handover.
