Motorcycle disturbance

Reported via Android anonymously at 10:20, Sat 2 April 2016

Sent to Newark and Sherwood District Council and Nottinghamshire County Council 5 minutes later

There has been a heightened number of instances where motorcycles are using a public footpath namely of the scrambler type. We have been forced to move into the hedgerows several times to let the speeding bikes past. My concern is for my children who use this byway. The particular path runs at the rear of my property of 7 mead way there appears to be barriers on one side but not the other so I don't know how they are getting through. This area needs to be assessed before I file a complaint add is not the first times that I have reported this regular occurrence. The path runs alongside the rear of properties 1-3-5-7-9 and so on. I believe this same group of youngsters have targeted our properties for graffiti as you will see at the rear of our fences and eggs thrown at the houses.

  • I was cc'd in an email from an endless from Newark council to Nottinghamshire council as they Connel the area in question then there was a further email telling me that it had been forwarded onto another department that deals with this problem since then I have heard nothing which leaves me to believe that if my children are hit by the motorbike then the council are liable aswell as the person riding the motorbike.
