    Global ride hit by bike theft

    Global ride hit by bike theft
    An Australian couple on a 30,000km round-the-world trip to raise funds for multiple sclerosis have had their motorcycle stolen in south Wales - just one day before completing their journey in London.

    Ralph Dixon, 42, and Fionnuala Livingston, 40, had stopped for a break on the M4 but returned to find their BMW F650 missing.

    The Sydney couple also lost gifts they had been given by people all over the world, and CDs containing photographs of their journey.

    Mr Dixon and Ms Livingston sold their home before setting out on the trip six months ago.

    After travelling 30,000km through 25 different countries - to have their bike stolen when they arrive here is astonishing

    They were forced to complete the final leg of their journey from Wales to London by train.

    Gwent Police appealed to the public to come forward with information about the bike.
