TEENAGERS are risking their lives speeding around a Bournemouth estate on mini motorbikes.

The youngsters, with no crash helmets, have been seen in the Cunningham Crescent area of West Howe in Bournemouth.

A spokesman for Bournemouth Police said: "We have had a number of issues with young lads riding mini motors around Cunningham Crescent. They take it in turns to complete a circuit. The rider has no helmet and is also seen to mount various pavements."

The spokesman said it was reported by a member of the public who told officers: "He is going to kill himself or someone else, especially how quickly he mounts the pavement. We have so many kids in this area that want to play safely."

Police have urged members of the public to report information about the riders or the whereabouts of the mini motorbikes.
