Abandoned Motorcycle

Reported in the Abandoned vehicles category anonymously at 17:42, Monday 3 June 2019

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 3 minutes later. Council ref: 1646834.

Good morning, The owner of Canal Boat 504719 name Annadonnis was moored along the river bank in the location indicated on the map. On the May bank holiday 27/5/19 I first noticed this canal boat. The owners were a couple (late twenties - thirty), a younger male (20ish) and a baby. They had two dogs one being an old black cross breed. They had a tent, dog beds and an open fire on the embankment. In the middle of this encampment to the left of the fire was an old rusty motorcycle. It never had wheels which were to the right of the fire. The motorcycle still had an engine and speedo/rev clocks still attached. Over the course of the week this motorcycle was further dismantled. Last night 02/06/19 the canal boat had disappeared and the motorcycle frame, petrol tank and wheels were abandoned on the embankment.

I did not see anyone working on the motorcycle however it was certainly in their possession because it was sitting in the middle of the camp whilst being dismantled.
