Motorbike safety warning issued

Police have issued safety advice to warn of the danger of driving motorcycles off road and without helmets.

Inspector Euan Smith said: “Driving off road and without helmets is not only dangerous for those on the bike, who may be inexperienced in handling a high powered motorbike, and don’t have the relevant training, but also puts members of the public in harms way.”

The general warning comes following a series of incidents in parts of Edinburgh.
