A gymnastics display team has launched a crowdfunding campaign to replace thousands of pounds worth of equipment lost when their trailer was stolen in Mapperley.

Dako Flying Angels, who are based in Sneinton, perform all over the country and have made numerous television appearances over the past few years.

But now a number of future appearances could be in doubt following the theft of the trailer earlier this week which contained over £10,000 worth of their display equipment.

The Angels will now be looking to replace a vaulting box, mats and also a number of mini-trampolines – which are all needed for their performances.

The team have now set up a crowdfunding page and are hoping members of the public will make donations that will go towards paying for replacement equipment.

Nottinghamshire Police are continuing to investigate the theft of the trailer on February 6.

The items were being stored inside a trailer which was stolen from Kingsbridge Avenue in Mapperley at around 7pm on February 6.

Police confirmed the trailer contained thousands of pounds worth of gymnastics equipment.

If anyone has any information, please call us on 101, quoting incident number 111 of 7 February.
