British opposition leader David Cameron has been reunited with his stolen bicycle thanks to a tabloid newspaper and a supporter of the rival Labour Party, the paper reported Sunday.

The Conservative party leader, often photographed riding his bike to work at the House of Commons, realized that it was stolen after he left it outside a supermarket near his west London home Wednesday evening.

The Sunday Mirror said it located the bicycle — dumped in a nearby street — with the help of 60-year-old resident Ernest Theophile, who enlisted neighborhood youths to trace it.

Theophile was identified by the paper as a staunch supporter of Britain's left-leaning Labour Party.
