North Wales Police have issued a call for public assistance in relation to reports of youths riding off-road biking on Westminster Crescent in Shotton.

The force is urging residents to remain vigilant and to report any relevant information that may assist in curbing the issue.

PCSO Thomas Maddocks emphasised the importance of community cooperation in resolving this matter. “If you know anything which you believe is of use to North Wales Police, please alert us,” he said.

Information can be passed via the Community Alert system, the North Wales Police webchat, or by calling the non-emergency line at 101.

The force is particularly interested in receiving information regarding the identities of the individuals involved.

They’ve assured residents that if they wish to remain anonymous, they can pass information to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The issue of off-road biking is not a new concern in the region.

It can pose risks to both riders who often have no helmet on and bystanders, particularly in populated residential areas, such as Westminster Crescent.
