A Harrogate doctor who had his bike stolen after a shift working in the emergency department has been gifted a brand new bike. 

  • Dr Naresh Gnanasekaran's bike was stolen from the hospital a month ago 
  • He says he was "devastated" at the time 
  • He'd just finished a shift in the emergency department 
  • Today, thanks to Halfords, he's been given a brand new bike 
  • Nick Knowles also picked up on what happened and helped secure the new bike 

Dr Naresh Gnanasekaran found his bike had been taken after a long shift in the emergency department at Harrogate Hospital last month. 

He said he was "devastated" at the time.  

Nick Knowles heard about the story on Twitter and offered to buy a new bike for Naresh.  

However, Halfords then stepped in and offered to help and today, he picked up his new set of wheels from the store.  

Dr Gnanasekaran says the response has been "overwhelming", and expressed his thanks to all involved on social media.
