BIGGEN­DEN po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an alarm­ing num­ber of un­li­censed and un­der­aged driv­ers on pub­lic roads in the area.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Mark Bradley said at least two of the in­ci­dences had re­sulted in crashes.

“Par­ents are urged to ed­u­cate their chil­dren re­gard­ing the dan­ger­ous con­se­quences of such ac­tions,” Snr Const Bradley said.

“The last thing po­lice or any­one else wants is for death mes­sages to be de­liv­ered as a re­sult of this be­hav­iour.”
