Residents on a Dundee housing scheme have hit out at police over their “reluctance” to deal with antisocial motorbike use.
The force has appealed for people to report incidents following recent complaints about yobs in Ardler.
Those living in the neighbouring St Mary’s area said the problem is continuing, despite numerous reports to officers.
Police Scotland stressed it has been tackling illegal motorbike use for a number of years through a campaign dubbed Operation Challenge.
But residents, who said they were too afraid to give their names for fear of repercussions because culprits live near their homes, spoke out about the problem, which they say is ongoing.
One male resident said: “The police seem very reluctant to do anything about the bikers, even though most folk are on the phone to them near enough every night.”
Police Scotland said officers were working with Dundee Community Safety Partnership to undertake intelligence gathering as well as patrolling hotspot areas.
A spokesman said: “We would ask the public to support the partnership in its work by contacting Police Scotland or Dundee City Council community safety warden service with sightings and information.”
