Residents of a Doncaster village are set to meet police next week to decide whether they want a crackdown on nuisance motorcyclists to continue.

The Rossington Safer Neighbourhood Team will meet residents at the Partners and Communities Together drop-in session to discuss whether they need to continue patrols to deal with the antisocial behaviour.

Residents say there have been problems caused by nuisance bikers around the path next to the field at Tranquil Walk and in Memoir Grove.

Riders of bikes and quad bikes have also been seen on the old pit top in the village.

In the summer complaints were also made about nuisance riders in and around the Rossington Miners Welfare club.

Following discussions with residents, South Yorkshire Police first took action in May.

Officers will review the situation after the meeting on Wednesday, January 7, at the Holmes Carr Centre cafe, starting at 10.30am.

Since the blitz was first put in place a number of special police operations have been carried out.

During the operation officers have so far seized and destroyed two illegal motorbikes.
