Police are joining forces to help antisocial off-roading in Silloth.

Cumbria Police and partners from Allerdale Borough Council have started a new initiative to target off road motorbikes/quad bikes.

It will target those riding bikes off road, along beaches or around public areas that is causing a detrimental effect on the community.

Members of the public are being asked to report any issues to Cumbria Police via 101 or use the My Allerdale app on your phone which will be dealt with through the Community Protection process.

Sergeant Scott Adams said: “I am really pleased to say that the new scheme has come in to operation. We hope to see a reduction in the number of riders speeding, riding off road and causing issues for those using our coastal pathways and inner town paths.

“Off road riding is an issue that many communities face as riders continue to ignore the very real consequence".
