A CHARITY worker has had the motorbike he used to ride through the Africa stolen by thieves when he returned to Stockport.

Charles Clark, 29, used his Honda XL250 to ride almost 5,000 miles home from Tanzania after a two-year-long teaching stint. After three months riding through countries and facing local militia, armies fighting a civil war and zealous border officials, Clark thought his bike would be safe left covered up in his sister Claire Clark's backyard on Bower Street, Reddish. But it was stolen some time between Friday, December 14, at 6.30pm and 11am on Sunday December 16th.

Clark travelled through Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Italy, France, often staying in small villages with welcoming locals.
