Two off-road bikes have been seized in Peel Hall as part of an operation to tackle antisocial behaviour during the summer holidays.

Safe4Summer launched on 23 July to coincide with the school holidays and sees police working with partners to ensure that residents have a safe and peaceful break.

Following numerous complaints about two nuisance bikes, police located the offenders and seized them. They have now been crushed.

Chief Inspector Derek Hewitt from the Wythenshawe Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Off-road bikes are one of the issues we receive the most complaints about. Not only do they cause misery to residents but they have the potential to cause serious injury to both the riders and innocent members of the public.

“Thanks to information supplied by residents we have managed to take two nuisance bikes off the streets and enable everybody to have a safer and more enjoyable summer break.”

Safe4Summer continues throughout the school break with extra patrols being put in place to deter antisocial behaviour and divert young people to more positive activities.

The Youth Bus, which provides a safe environment for young people, will also be deployed to hotspot antisocial behaviour areas. Meanwhile police have arranged rugby training sessions at Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre on Tuesdays between 4pm and 5.30pm.
