  1. Lets hope this man can sort things out.

    As it seems that almost every week a Quad Bike goes missing from the dales area and never seen again.

    They need to invest in modern technology with more drones and many many cameras on all bridges over the main rivers in the area as everyone needs to cross rivers to come in and out of the area.

    With this method in place one man could see the movement of these late night thefts then pass the information out to police on the ground with drones etc and maybe then have a sporting chance of catching some of them.
