I WAS so pleased to read Frank Field's column MP's bike thugs blast (Wirral Globe, August 16, 2017) - at last we might get something done.

Bike thefts have always been a problem but it is the illegal use of bikes that has created the biggest nuisance.

A day doesn't pass without seeing these thugs tearing around Wirral.

Unfortunately, it is not unusual to see the police ignore these scumbags as they are cutting through traffic it seems to be a case of if we don't look we don’t have to do anything.
