Cleveland Police warn of residents 'terrorising' residents
Date of alert:
Saturday, 11 March 2023
Police are urging members of the public to send in any images or footage of off-road bikes being ridden illegally.
As the weather improves over the coming months and reports of the use of illegal off-road bikes potentially increases, officers are encouraging members of the public to submit footage and images as part of their intelligence-gathering process, so that police can look to seize the vehicles and take appropriate action.
Sergeant Chris Turner, from the Rural Crime Team, said: “Over the coming months as the weather begins to pick up we usually see an increase in reports of antisocial behaviour committed by illegal off-road bikers who are a blight on our community and can represent a danger to pedestrians and other road users.
