Preston Police have been cracking down on the former Fishwick Golf Course site.

Officers were out on bikes to try and catch a number of scrambler bikers and quad bikers who have been using the site as a dirt track.

Pictures of two men riding scrambler bikes have been released above in an appeal to track them down.

A quad bike was seized on the course under the Police Reform Act 2002.

A police spokesman said: “We want to deal with the people causing issues on the golf course as quickly and effectively as possible, but to do that, we need your help.

“If you know the owners or riders of the bikes, or know where they are being stored, get in touch and let us know. If you have any photographic evidence of the bikes in use, send it in so we can begin trying to identify offenders. Any reports will be dealt with anonymously.”

Blog Preston reported in April last year how the golf course, which saw the club go bust in November 2018, had become a hot spot for anti-social behaviour.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or email 5094@lancashire.pnn.police.uk
