CHRISTMAS letters and parcels are missing after a thief stole a Royal Mail cycle mid way through a postman's delivery.

A police spokesman said the theft happened at around 12.20pm last Wednesday when the postman left his cycle to deliver to a property in West Street, Wisbech.

"As he went back to his cycle a passer by went up to him and said he had just seen another man cycle off on his bike," said the spokesman. No description has been issued of the offender but police believe he may have been in his late teens.
