Police warn off-road bikers.

YOUTHS riding off-road motorcycles face a clampdown by police following a spate of public complaints in the Coventry area.

Traffic officers PC Jim Sampson and PC Stephen Ryder say riders and pillion passengers wreaking havoc on farms and woodland could be charged with criminal damage. PC Ryder said they aim to improve the quality of life for residents as well as reducing the chance of accidents.

He said parents may also be held responsible for their children's actions.

Youngsters who want to ride bikes off-road are advised to phone the Ryton motocross track on 024 7654 3937.
