After complaints from people in the city, Operation Dismount was an appeal that started earlier in the year to target nuisance motorbikes.

Preston police are now attempting to track down a man who was captured riding along public footpaths at the popular Guild Wheel on a motorbike yesterday.

The Guild Wheel route is mainly off-road and traffic free and according to the LCC website, provides 'a scenic and safe cycling and walking route for all the family to use'.
