The helmets were left at the side of Newbold Road, Chesterfield, by the much-loved young biker’s mother and sister.

Nathaniel, 25, lost control of his motorbike and hit a lamp post after riding through a pool of hydraulic liquid on the road earlier this month. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Emotional messages were left on the helmets. A third helmet was not taken.

Nathaniel’s sister, Bekky Taylor, tonight told the Derbyshire Times: “Thank you for sharing what happened.

“Thankfully one helmet has been returned but one is still missing.”

She said earlier: “I can’t believe someone would do such a thing.

“I know we left them there at our own risk but it is disrespectful to take them from this site of remembrance.”

Appealing to the people who took the helmets, Bekky said: “Please could you return them.

“Myself and my family are very upset that this has happened.”
