Did you see an collision with a motorbike and a Tipper van in Formby?

MERSEYSIDE Police have responded to a road traffic collision (RTC) involving an off road bike, in Formby, on Wednesday, 1 February 2017. We are told that a scrambler bike had been witnessed in collision with a Ford Transit Tipper van, on Paradise Lane, at around 4pm. It was initially reported that the rider of the bike was injured in the collision and was driven off in a small silver Ford Fiesta, although nobody attended Hospital with injuries. The driver of the van was not injured and there was no serious damage to the vehicle. The Officers who attended the location have recovered a suspected stolen orange, white and black KTM bike.

Sefton Local Policing Inspector Andy Bragg said:- "We are pleased to have removed another suspected stolen bike from the streets and I would like to thank the community for providing vital information. If you witnessed this incident, know who was using this bike and have any other information about the illegal and anti social use of bikes, please contact us and we can continue to take positive action. Luckily on this occasion, it appears that nobody was seriously injured, but in recent months, we have seen how dangerous such bikes can be, for pedestrians, other road users and the riders themselves. Merseyside Police is absolutely committed to taking any action which makes our roads safer."

Anyone with information on where motorbikes are being stored or used is urged to call:- 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
