POLICE RELEASED a 'tongue-in-cheek' statement explaining how a local farmer had 'donated' 2,500 gallons of cow slurry to help deter anti-social motorbikes from riding on a popular playing field.
The playing fields became damaged after becoming something of a hotspot for motorbikes, they said, adding that the slurry would stop anyone fancying their chances at riding a motorbike there for a while. In an update on social media last Friday (July 15), Blackburn and Darwen Police highlighted how antisocial riding of motorbikes had become problematic around the town.
A local farmer donated the slurry, reports Lancashire Live, to help repair pathways and grass at the Pleasington playing fields, damaged after being used as a 'unofficial circuit' for the young riders for some time.
