Foyle police have appealed for information on the misuse of scramblers and off-road bikes on the green areas and footpaths in Galliagh.

On Wednesday, July 23, three young children were very narrowly missed by one rider who was speeding along a footpath near Rossnagalliagh.

This week, neighbourhood officers seized two off-road bikes being misused in the Galliagh area, however more bikes are still currently being sought.

These include a black scrambler type bike with decals displaying the number ‘121’ or similar, following a report of it being ridden by a male youth wearing a black helmet, a white t-shirt and blue tracksuit bottoms with three white stripes down the leg and a black and red scrambler type bike with a race number plate displayed.

The PSNI want to locate and remove dangerously misused vehicles from the streets and say perpetrators face arrest and prosecution.
