Police condemn bikers gathered in Lincolnshire woods

They said a few let the side down

Police have condemned some of the bikers in the woods east of Market Rasen after “a few let the side down” over the weekend.

Lincolnshire Police released a photo of a large group of people and motorbikes at Willingham Woods on Sunday, May 17, saying “social distancing applies to everyone”.

The force said: “The majority of motorcyclists drive carefully and enjoy a ride out, but a few let the side down, driving dangerously and putting themselves and others at risk of injury.”

This wasn’t the only incident though as police received more than 200 ‘lockdown breach’ calls in Lincolnshire this weekend.
