Officers from the Wingerworth Safer Neighbourhood Team were on patrol in New Tupton yesterday (Wednesday, April 3) when they spotted three youths on two mopeds – travelling into the village from the A61 Derby Road.

An SNT spokesperson said: “After being given a pleasant wave, we decided to turn our vehicle around and follow in the same direction. Local residents then gave us directions onto Northside, and this is where we came face to face with the riders again.
