Police response under fire
Posted on April 12, 2007
Teen bikers get away with causing nuisance.
Police may be promising to come down hard on nuisance motorcyclists in the area. But their response to them so far has been dubbed "absolutely farcical".
Last week it was announced that bikers who break the law could face having their bikes crushed.
But now a police spokesman has admitted that responding to calls about two-wheeled troublemakers quickly isn't always the top priority.
An angry Eaton Bray householder has said that her efforts to get the police on the case have so far been in vain.
Marion Heyland of Manton Road rang police last Monday because of the problems bikers were causing.
But she claimed that she didn't receive a response until several hours later, by which time the youngsters had moved on of their own accord.
"I'm concerned about the lack of response with the police," she said. "It's absolutely farcical."
