Woodland trails damaged in Forest of Dean
Gloucestershire Constabulary are appealing for information after reports of people damaging woodland trails in the Forest of Dean by using scrambler style motorbikes.
The motorbikes have been used in the recreational areas around Cannop, using forestry trails that are designed for use by mountain bikes.
The rider of the motorbike is suspected of riding the bike across the cycle trails belonging to the Forestry Commission and has churned them up, making them un-useable until they have been resurfaced at a cost of £5,000.
The bike has been described as a white and red scrambler style bike, with gold suspension forks and a ‘3’ on a plate at the front. The bike has no registration plate on it.
There are concerns that this is a regular occurrence over the weekends.
Anyone with information should contact Gloucestershire Constabulary on 101, quoting incident 56 of 13 July.
