Bikes seized from riders

Have your say

A BOY was warned by police after he was seen riding a motorbike near Don Valley School in Scawthorpe.

The rider was followed by the South Yorkshire Police helicopter after officers received reports of nuisance motorcycles in the area.

Officers on the ground were directed to find the youth. He was spoken to and the bike was taken from him following the incident on Saturday afternoon.

Officers then received reports of another nuisance bike at Highfields Country Park.

The helicopter followed and thought it was being ridden dangerously. The rider was eventually located near Highfields Lake. Police spoke to him and took the bike away.
