An Edinburgh therapist is ‘devastated’ after a thief stole her beloved e-bike from outside of her work in Meadowbank.

Margaret Taylor, 59, had her Cube Kathmandu hybrid 625 small frame stolen from Meadowbank Terrace on Wednesday May 1 between the hours of 3.30pm and 4.45pm.

She says the ordeal has left her feeling ‘angry’ and ‘vulnerable’ with the theft also impacting her ability to access her work when new LEZ procedures come in later this year.

“I feel angry and vulnerable and feel sick to my stomach! I was going to be using it more come June as my car is old and doesn’t qualify for LEZ zone.

“I live at the top of a hill which is why I needed the electric bike. It had a lovely blue frame, and was a Cube Kathmandu hybrid 625 small frame, it is only two-years-old.

“ It has a Brooke’s saddle which was a gift. I had taken out the battery which was very heavy.
