Officers are patrolling Bolehill Quarry.

It comes after reports that people are parking at the top of the road, going down the quarry and ‘walking in and out with holdalls’ along with ‘endless cars’ in and around the area.

One social media user Neil Stuart commented: “Shame you couldn't have been there today (Wednesday 24th) when three scramble bikes and bikers were on the quarry land, brought in by two vans.”
