Off-road motorbikes seized in Rivington

Police from Chorley and South Ribble have been tackling off-road motorbiking in Rivington.

Working alongside United Utilities, Chorley Council and Rivington Heritage Trust, and using a mix of plain-clothed officers and high visibility patrols, officers carried out a two-day operation on Friday and Saturday  to target those using the bikes and any associated anti-social behaviour.

As a result of the operation, they:

  • Seized two off-road motorbikes which were being driven without valid insurance.
  • Carried out numerous stop checks and vehicle checks in the area.
  • Engaged with businesses, stakeholders and members of the public who have provided us with information about the problem areas so that we can continue these operations.

PC Cross said: “It’s good to see that two uninsured vehicles causing nuisance have been taken off the roads and are no longer likely to cause issues for people in the area.

“We are proud to be working to preserve and protect our rural areas and I want to thank the local community who have helped us massively in tackling these issues.

“Rural crime and Heritage crime is prevalent across the UK and we are doing our bit to tackle that in whichever form it takes here in South Lancashire.

“We will continue to run operations of this nature to keep our protected sites and rural communities safe. We will also keep working closely with partner agencies to tackle the issues and concerns raised to us.”
