500 motorbikes expected in large "ride out" in Hull today

It's part of a crackdown on motorbike-related crime.

They want to send out the message that enough is enough when it comes to motorbike crime.

They're working with Humberside Police as part of Operation Yellowfin, to help reduce motorbike-related crimes, such as theft and anti-social behaviour.

Chief Inspector Paul Butler says: “This event will round up a successful week of activity for Operation Yellowfin which has seen our officers out and about all across Hull.

“Throughout the week there have been engagement events which have brought individuals and businesses on board, and has made everyone aware of the work we’re doing to tackle motorcycle crime.

“Petrol restrictions on illegal riders, crime prevention messages, scanning of suspected stolen bikes and parts, and our community engagement work are just some of the initiatives that have been underway.

“I’m extremely pleased that the message is getting out that we’ve listened, acted, and will not stop tackling motorbike crime. Whether that be theft, handling, stolen parts, or ASB and associated crimes."
