Hal­loween bik­ers are warned by po­lice

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - News -

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.
