CCTV Appeal by Merseyside Police to find scrambler bike riders

MERSEYSIDE Police are circulating images of men we wish to speak to following illegal and anti social large scale gatherings of off road bikes across Merseyside. Between 1pm and 9pm, on Sunday, 2 October 2016, groups of up to 50 bikes brought some roads on Merseyside to a standstill. Riders were seen doing wheelies and ignoring red traffic lights and were also involved in a number of incidents of anti social behaviour during the day. Since these incidents, extensive investigations have taken place in an effort to find those responsible, resulting in 86 motorbikes being recovered, many of which have been stolen, and more than 30 people being arrested.

Detective Inspector Ian Warlow said:- "The scrambler riders that day had a complete disregard for public safety. Their actions were reckless and criminal and it is only through sheer luck that a member of the public, a Police Officer or one of those bikers was not seriously injured. Indeed, we have had incidents since which have resulted in serious injuries to both illegal riders and members of the public. We have had considerable success since that Sunday, recovering dozens of bikes, many of which have been found to be stolen. Each one taken off the road makes Merseyside a safer place. But this action will continue, so we would urge anyone who has any information which could help us to identify those who took part in this reckless convoy to contact Merseyside Police."

Anyone with information to help identify these males is urged to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
