Crackdown on off-road bikers

Have your say

A QUAD bike was seized by police on Edward Street, Stocksbridge, Sheffield, after officers received complaints it was being ridden off-road, causing a nuisance.

Another rider caught using a scooter anti-socially on Deer Park Road, Stannington, was issued with a police warning meaning his bike will be seized if he is caught causing a nuisance on it again.

Both riders were stopped by police on Monday, March 5.

In another operation, the police helicopter was drafted in to help officers on the ground deal with nuisance off-road quad bikes and motorbikes in Waterthorpe and Handsworth.

And the police helicopter was used to film nuisance motorcyclists riding around Wath, Rotherham, while officers on the ground were directed to offenders. Two arrests were made on Sunday.
