The search is on for an anti-social motorbike rider who has been driving on footpaths.

The person pictured on the red bike is believed to have been riding anti-socially in Carrington Avenue, Borehamwood.

The police from Hertfordshire Constabulary are asking for people who recognised the rider to get in touch.

Anti-social riders will face random stop and search checks from officers in the Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNTs) of Borehamwood and Elstree, Bushey and Radlett, and Potters Bar and Shenley.

These will be undertaken as part of Operation Carm (Campaign Against Rogue Motorcycles) where officers will be carrying out extra high-visibility patrols throughout the summer.

Safer Neighbourhood Sergeant Tom Prior said: “Riding mopeds and motorcycles on bridle paths and footpaths is a criminal offence, which tends to increase during the summer and we will be tackling this robustly.

“Whilst there are a lot of things we can do, we need your help to tell us when and where it is happening and tell us what the riders look like and any registration plates.

“If it is safe to do so, please also send us any video footage or stills of any anti-social riding. Together, we can make it difficult for riders to commit these crimes in your neighbourhood, as it is not acceptable for local residents to put up with this.”

He added: “I’d also discourage parents from buying these bikes, unless they have a suitable place for them to be ridden.”

Police ask residents to call 101 to discuss anti-social behaviour or 999 if there is a crime in progress.
