Burned out bike abandoned in Riverside Park

burned out bike 1The remains of a motorbike that appears to have been destroyed by fire have been abandoned in Riverside Park.

It's between the practice cycle track and the playground in Cobden Meadows – alongside a damaged area of grass.

Some smaller parts of the bike have been scattered about, and, intriguingly, some twigs have been left on top of part it.

In response to the news, the Friends of Riverside Park tweeted: "Thankfully not a common occurs but still a very annoying one."
