It comes amid growing reports of antisocial bikers causing mayhem for walkers along the canal near Hollingwood and Staveley Works.

Police said: “We will not tolerate bikers using the Trans Penine Trail and Chesterfield Canal path as their very own race track and we will target them, seize all their bikes and report them for the offences.
