Ian Hutchinson's 2016 TT-winning Superstock bike was stolen during this weekend's Motorcycle Live show in Birmingham.

Four bikes belongin to the Tyco BMW team were taken overnight from the Premier Inn at the National Exhibition Centre.

One of Guy Martin's TT Superbikes was also taken, along with two machines belonging to British Superbike Championship rider Christian Iddon.

Team manager Philip Neill has described the theft as devastating, adding that the bikes have real sentimental value, and were only at the event so fans could see them up close.

Yesterday was the final day of the exhibition, with the Isle of Man TT taking centre stage.

West Midlands Police are investigating the theft.
