Special meeting called as scrambler bike petition tops 4,000

An ‘extraordinary’ council meeting has been called by Wirral’s Conservative Councillors, as the petition for tougher action on scrambler bikes surpasses 4,000 names. The meeting, set by the Mayor, will be held on Monday 11 December at Wallasey Town Hall.

The danger caused by misuse of scrambler bikes in parks, open spaces and roads around the Borough led to calls by Councillor Bruce Berry for more action by the Police and the Council’s new ‘Safer Wirral Hub’ to tackle the problem, including seizing the bikes.

Councillor Berry said: “Thank you to everyone who has, so far, signed this petition. To reach over 4,000 names in such a short space of time shows the strength of public feeling and will, I hope, persuade the Authorities to take this problem seriously.”

“I my recent survey of residents, parents told me they felt unsafe in Lingham Park when these bikes are tearing around the fields and shoppers around Moreton Cross have also narrowly avoided being hit. We’ve seen one crash in Liscard recently, we need action before there are any more.”
