Call to make room for bikers

CALLS have been made for more Morpeth motorbike bays.

Mayor Mark Horton raised the issue with county parking officers at a meeting of the Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade last week.

He said: “We are very short of motorcycle spaces and the motorcycle bay in the car park by St George’s Church is right next to the bottle bank so quite often there is broken bits of glass there.

“There is nowhere to park motorbikes and we do get a lot of motorcyclists in the town, certainly on Saturdays and Sundays.

“We do need to think about where we are going to put them.”
