Detective Inspector Steve Reardon said:- "We will continue to take pro-active action against those involved in the criminal use of scrambler bikes on our roads and will do everything possible to locate and seize suspected stolen or nuisance bikes and arrest those who are putting the safety of others at risk. I would like to take this opportunity to reassure communities across Merseyside that we understand their concerns about scrambler bikes and are relentless in our efforts to tackle them. Such behaviour cannot and will not be tolerated on the streets of Merseyside and our response reflects how seriously we take this issue. I would urge anyone with information which could help us take these bikes out of circulation and make our streets safer to keep coming forward."

Anyone with information on who is using these bikes and where they are being stored is urged to call:- 0151 777 3047 or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111.
