Tracking bike disorder

POLICE have put the brakes on motorbike disorder.

Morpeth Neighbourhood Policing Team has been hot on the trail of incidents in Widdrington, Druridge Bay and Cresswell.

Every year there are seasonal reports of youths riding motorbikes on farm land close to the former Stobswood brickworks and along the sand dunes at the coast.

This year officers were receiving daily reports so they have put up signs and distributed leaflets warning of the penalties, including having bikes seized. As a results, reports of bike disorder have dropped to single figures.

To report an incident call 101.
