CCTV appeal as motorbikes blight Preston neighbourhood
Officers say young men have been riding bikes around Ingol and Tanterton, causing excessive noise and damaging the golf course.
Now police have released CCTV images of riders they want to speak to as they work to crack down on the problem.
They say they have had a number of reports of motorcycle nuisance, affecting streets including Lower Greenfield, Oaktree Avenue, Walker Lane and Boys Lane.
A statement said young men had been driving their vehicles “at speed”, causing excessive noise by revving engines during the afternoon and early evenings.
Police said many reports were also being received from the area of Ingol Golf Club and Jubilee Green Fields, with extensive damage being caused to the golf course.
In a post on social media, police said: “To those responsible, we do have powers to seize motorcycles being driven in an anti-social manner and we will start using them.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 or 01772 209441.
