Police investigating a series of reports of antisocial behaviour, criminal damage and assaults carried out in South Yorkshire last weekend have released CCTV images of quad bike riders they would like to trace.

On Saturday 18 February from about 6.30pm, police started receiving calls from local residents and businesses about two quad bikes engaging in antisocial behaviour in Royston, Barnsley.

In Fish Dam Lane, it is reported that police vehicles were damaged by the riders of the quad bikes. Members of the public made further calls to report that the riders were reportedly spraying fire extinguishers at people and businesses, causing damage.

Several members of the public were sprayed in the face, but no injuries were sustained.

It is understood that each quad bike had two riders on.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Police want to hear from anyone who recognises the quad bikes or the riders pictured, or who may hold any information about those responsible for these incidents.
