We asked…

  • What concerns do you have about your neighbourhood?

You said...

  • Nuisance and persistent motorcycle disorder and damage caused by this disorder particularly around the Elemore Lane Golf Club and Airedale Gardens in Hetton le Hole and Easington Lane.

We did...

  • The police mounted a plain clothes operation at the golf club and in the surrounding streets over a number of weeks. During this time they were able to identify a number of persistent offenders who have had their bikes seized and crushed and one offender has been arrested. This operation has led to a decrease in reports of this type of behaviour in that area however the police will continue to monitor the situation and will deal robustly with anyone committing further offences.
