A NOVEL attempt to hide in tunnels at Leeds Bradford airport on Friday evening failed to pay for an illegal biker, who was eventually followed to an address in the Bradford area

Officers from the Leeds District Off-Road Bike Team were responding to yet more reports of illegal bikes being used on the fields and the woods of Calverley.

With the assistance of a police helicopter, a bike and its rider were followed to the address in the Bradford area, but not before the rider tried to evade police by hiding in the tunnels at the airport.

With assistance from local Bradford officers and Leeds Special Constables, the Leeds District Off-Road Bike Team seized the KTM 250.

The off-road team have a simple message: Ride illegal bikes and you’re going to get caught.
