POLICE in Highgate have launched a crackdown on rogue scooter riders who have been causing distress to residents.

A gang of youths have been tearing around the Chester Road area pulling tricks and revving their engines, ruining the peace and quiet.

In recent weeks, the Safer Neighbourhoods Team have seized two scooters and this week they issued warnings to other riders that they would lose their bikes if they carried on causing distress.

PC Mick Hill said: "These youths were basically going around riding recklessly with loud exhaust pipes causing residents alarm and distress.

"We have the powers to act on the evidence of residents who constantly ring us up and let us know what has been happening. We have responded to the community's concerns and sought out the perpetrators and issued them with warnings.
