We have been running Operation Scrambler 2 and up to date we have seized 2 bikes and reported several riders for several offences . This Operation has only been running for short time .We have had members of the public sending us video footage of these bikes and I hope this continues to rid the area of the bikes and riders .

Over the last month I have been working with the local Housing officesr , in connection to Off Road Bikes , smoking cannabis / using drugs and other ASB issues . As some of you are tenants of Onward / Riverside you must remember that any issues that affects other residents, may lead to Police action and this in turn may affect your tenancy with that housing authority .
