Motorbikes causing ‘alarm and distress’ in Spilsby are now the town’s number one police priority, the force has confirmed.
Following a successful crackdown on antisocial behaviour including some high profile arrests and evictions, Sergeant Richard Comins has reported that the issue has now mutated towards nuisance bikers.
“There’s been a reduction in general antisocial behaviour but we need to tackle these motor bikes that are going round town and that’s what I intend to do,” he told Spilsby Town Council last night.
Sergeant Comins said a ‘small number of individuals’ are causing ‘alarm and distress’ by repeatedly driving around the town at high speeds.
A number of section 59 orders, have been issued which can result in the vehicles being impounded, and Sergeant Comins feels ‘confident’ the problem can be tackled.
