MORE than 100 illegal off-road bikes have been taken off the borough’s roads since the start of the year, police figures have revealed.

South Yorkshire Police’s clampdown has yielded 105 bikes and 15 quads, with many believed to have been stolen.

A spokesperson said: “We appreciate the urban areas will still see two-wheeled activity.

“There has been an increase in the use of electric motorbikes.

“We are urging members of the public to continue to report incidents involving these bikes, or if they witness them being used in public places or on the roads.

“When reporting please try and provide as much information as possible including a description of the bike and rider.”
