A spokesperson for the Calderdale police force said: "We continue our relentless disruption tactics to dismantle the so called ‘DINGERS’ and other groups which have appeared on social media.

"They appear to boast of their criminality and actively film themselves riding stolen bikes dangerously through the streets of Halifax, causing misery to the local residents.

"Enough is enough. Six individuals have now been arrested in connection with the groups.

"We are investigating the theft of 17 vehicles and two individuals have been have been charged for four offences."
