Off Road Motorbikes

The police have taken a number of reports that off road motorbikes are being used on private land and public roads.

If a person has been identified then positive action will be taken.

Officers from Brigg NPT have seized 2 motorcycles that were being ridden illegally.

Working alongside the community Brigg NPT officers were able to locate and recover a stolen vehicle from Mill Lane in Brigg.

We attended a Schools Partnership Meeting and a Ward Meeting with our partners were we discussed some of the issues in the area and how we can best tackle these issues together.

We liaised with 2 neighbours in Broughton who were at an indifference and supported both sets of neighbours so they can co-exist without fear of falling out.

We supported an elderly lady in Roxby who scammers had attempted to coerce in to giving them access to her bank account, luckily this lady was very switched on and foiled the scammers.

We have been patrolling a number of 'hotspot' areas were calls for service would identify areas as most in need of police attention. We have been conducting patrols in the areas of, Mill Lane in Brigg, Tesco's in Brigg, Atherton Way in Brigg, Brigg Recreation Ground, Middlegate Lane, Brigg Donky Park, River Ancholme and Phil Grundy Sports Centre in Broughton.
