Officers encouraged residents to contact them with information that would help them tackle the biking problem.

An SNT spokesperson said: “As you can see it is not just kids riding bikes around with no insurance and no licence causing issues. It’s grown adults too, with them taking unnecessary risks on the road to other road users, pedestrians and themselves. This is why we are now determined to target these bikes.”
