Scrambler bikes destroying the peace of Sefton’s lovely countryside

The Liverpool Echo has the stories – see links above

There is no doubt in my mind that Sefton Borough has long had a problem with anti-social people riding scrambler bikes in our beautiful places and now even in an indoor shopping centre! That’s not to say that Merseyside Police have been ignoring the problem because they have had a number of successes in tracking the dangerous riders down.

In the East Parishes part of the Borough the tow path of the Leeds Liverpool Canal, the Cheshire Lines Path and Jubilee Woods all suffer from scrambler bikes being ridden at speed and with no regard for the the safety of walkers.

Merseyside Police, despite their very limited resources are to be commended for trying to tackle this problem. Let’s hope they confiscate more bikes for the crusher!
