Policing in Canterbury

Cops are cracking down on persistent offenders caught riding their bikes on the pavement in Barton Ward, Canterbury, and slapping them with £30 fines.

Barton Ward Residents' Association member Philip Robinson, 69, of Barton Road, said: "There is a feeling something ought to be done about cyclists on pavements
but my own belief is cyclists use pavements because the roads are so dangerous and there are so many potholes.
