The 28-year-old said: “Personally I feel some responsibility that it wasn’t locked up properly.
“It was locked up outside the building but it wasn’t as secure as I thought it was.
“I’m happy to have it returned but I am looking forward to buying a new bike, as the one I have is not in good condition.
“I am confident the police will get to the bottom of what happened,” he added.
