Derbyshire’s Rural Crime Team has criticised cyclists who rode on historic and environmentally protected land – and then abused the owner.
On Monday, July 4, the Derbyshire Rural Crime Team reported that they had attended an incident at Tideslow Rake in the Peak District.
Officers found that a pair of cyclists had ignored notices not to ride on the land – which is legally protected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
