Have your say

Nuisance off-road motorcyclists in the Ironville area could have their bikes seized if they are riding illegally or ignore warnings about their behaviour.

The Somercotes and Riddings Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team is targeting the issue after complaints about people riding off-road on land known locally as The Forge, which runs between Ironville, Codnor Park and Jacksdale.

Police have the power to stop riders and, if they are found to be riding mini-motos or motorbikes illegally or in a manner which causes alarm or distress to others on more than one occasion officers can seize the vehicles.
