SINN Féin Newcastle area Councillor Willie Clarke is calling for an end to quad riding in the Burrendale Estate in Newcastle.
Councillor Willie Clarke said: “The anti-social use of these bikes is a menace on the local community. I have had a high number of complaints about the use of quads being driven around the estate.
“The community green spaces are being badly damaged by these vehicles. In some cases they are being driven along the footpaths placing pedestrians in serious danger as well as young children out playing in the street.
“It has been a case that people have turned a blind eye to the way these bikes are being driven about the place but it is now time that action was taken.
“If anyone has information on who is behind this anti community activity then they should report it to the PSNI.”]]>
