Off-Road Bikes


Officers from the Police Off-Road Bike team and Easington Neighbourhood Policing Team have been out in the area of South Hetton today.

Can we again remind those that may have or be looking to purchase an off-road bike that it is illegal to ride a motorised vehicle without tax, insurance or MOT on public land or roads. We WILL seize any bikes found ridden illegally and will take further action, where necessary against the riders.

These vehicles cause a vast amount of damage to our public walkways, grassed areas and fields and pose a real danger to members of the public trying to enjoy these areas.

If you have any information regarding off-road vehicles, then please contact Police on 101 or message us through Facebook.
