Nuisance bike users targeted by cops

Have your say

A ‘mini moto’ was seized by police in Ironville in a bid to target nuisance and illegal off-road riding.

The scaled down size motorbike was seized by an officer on patrol in Ironville at around 5.50pm on Saturday, January 4, after it was seen on the road without the rider having a licence or insurance.

Bobbies from the Somercotes and Riddings Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said they had received numerous reports of various motorbikes being revved up and down land known as The Forge, which runs between Ironville, Codnor Park and Jacksdale.
