Mr Parry. Done. Also contacted the local police authority. I have given the PA 7 days to get the bike back at a time convenient to myself.

Yes, you've guessed it. They arranged to deliver back at 5pm this evening. I'm sure you can guess the rest. Still awaiting a reply fromt he Police Authority and my MP. Looks like I'll have to do what I should have done weeks ago and refer this to the legal cover on my bike insurance.

Legal Action

Hi Steve,

Do`nt hang around mate, get your legal cover at work straight away....... Personally I do`nt trust the bill as far as I can pee upwind.

The longer you leave this it will get more complex. Somethings you need to nail quickly. Keep us informed ?

Good luck !

Bike was delivered back at 7.30pm on Tuesday. Wednesday morning my local MP's secretary called me for an update - having been told by the police the bike was back. Coincidence? - maybe.... Gwent Police Authority have passed on my complaint to the Chief Constable. I see several license endorsements in my near future....
