RESIDENTS have hit out at illegal off-road bikers who have blighted a park in Grimethorpe.

Luke Callaghan, of Grange Road, Brierley, has raised his concerns on the ongoing problems of bikers using Grimethorpe Park as a ‘race track’.

The 25-year-old said: “It is absolutely disgusting that this keeps happening on what is meant to be a public park for families.

“This happens most days and I don’t understand it. The problem needs to be stamped out and urgent action needs to be taken.

“It ruins our green spaces and can be really dangerous.”

To report illegal off-road bikers, call South Yorkshire Police on 101 or online through the website.
