Warning to off-road motorbike and mini-moto users
The Bridlington Community Team are urging people not to risk injuring themselves and members of the community or falling foul of the law when using off-road motorbikes or mini-moto’s.
There are plenty of opportunities for you to meet your local officers and talk to them about problems you're worried about. You can pop along to Police Surgeries, which are informal drop-in sessions at well visited places in the community. It's a chance to meet your local officers, tell them about crime and antisocial behaviour in your area and get crime prevention advice.
You can also have a say in what your local police and other agencies focus on in your area at Priority Setting Meetings. Any member of the community can go along and talk to local officers and PCSO's, council workers and people from Fire and Rescue about issues you face. What you say at these meetings will help the policing teams decide how they should focus their resources in your area. If you think we're getting it right or wrong at the moment, come along and have your say.

Anti-social behaviour continues to be a priority for local officers who are constantly looking to identify offenders and deal with them appropriately. There has been an increase in anti-social behaviour in the Well Lane area of Bridlington with large groups of youths causing damage to nearby woods and vehicles. They have also been causing a lot of the local residents a lot of harassment alarm and distress due to their anti-social behaviour. The police are increasing their patrols in the area and have already taken positive action with some of those involved.
There have also been issues with individuals’ starting fires in nearby woods with the Fire service being called out on several occasions. It goes without saying that this is very dangerous and can seriously hurt members of the public as well as those involved in starting them. This has also resulted in damage being caused to the area.
Anti-social behaviour can hugely impact on individuals and make them feel unsafe in their own homes. This is not acceptable and we as a community team do all we can to eradicate these issues.
We can only do this with information the public give us so I would encourage members of the public to log all incidents of this nature to the police via the 101 non-emergency number.
