Gedling‘s Operation Reacher team has been out in force over the weekend tackling boy racers in Colwick and Netherfield.

The dedicated team spent the weekend stopping vehicles involved in ‘car cruising’ in the area – which has prompted complaints from residents.

The team confirmed that multiple vehicles were stopped during the weekend of action.

Police said they had been advised about their manner of driving and a few traffic offence reports have also been issued.

Gedling police teams committed to tackling the car cruising issue back in December.

They launched a dedicated operation, called ‘Operation Triplefin’ after concerns were raised about the problem, with a growing number of car meets at Colwick Industrial Estate and near Victoria Retail Park in Netherfield.

The Operation Triplefin team says will target those individuals to ‘educate as well as enforce to reduce this issue for the community’.
