Dear FOI,

Thank you for your timely response. I will try to clarify the information that I require.

Could you give me the results for the dates between April 2018 to April 2020 please. I am looking for the number of complaints about the use of quad bikes or motor bikes within the village of Grimethorpe South Yorkshire and the surrounding wooded/public areas.

I would like to know how many times officers have attended complaints about the use of quad bikes and motor bikes in this area and what action was taken. Was a warning issued, any fines, have any illegal vehicles been seized?

Yours sincerely,

Rita Harding

FOI, South Yorkshire Police
