Police hunt for saboteurs who threw nails on the road during Wiggle cycling event in the New Forest
Updated 8:34am Tuesday 15th April 2014 in News
POLICE are carrying out door-to-door inquiries in the hunt for saboteurs who targeted a mass cycling event in the New Forest.
A total of 15 cyclists suffered punctures but police say no-one was injured. Now officers are carrying out house-to-house inquiries in a bid to trace the culprits.
Bransgore Parish Council chairman Cllr Richard Frampton hit out at attempts to sabotage the ride and endanger the safety of riders.
He said: “I know there’s been sensitivity over these events, partly because of the numbers, but there’s no excuse for anyone to take the law into their own hands.
“If there are genuine concerns they should go through the proper channels and be looked at in the correct way.”
It follows a similar incident last year in which opponents placed drawing pins in the road.
