Halloween bikers are warned by police
Motorcyclists who cause chaos by taking part in so-called Halloween “ride outs” have been warned they will be dealt with “robustly” by police.
Scotland Yard has launched a crackdown on the events, after responding to large groups of bikers engaging in anti-social behaviour for the last two years.
The riders were intent on causing disruption across London by driving recklessly, on the wrong side of the road, through red lights and on pavements, the Metropolitan Police said.
Many of those taking part in the Halloween “ride outs” were also using stolen motorbikes, it added.
Police say the riders are putting the public and their lives’ at risk.
The phenomenon has also spread to cities like Leeds.
