Essex Police have warned motorcyclists taking part in an unauthorised bike meet in London during the Halloweeen period they will take action against anyone riding in a way that puts others in risk.

Police say during previous meetings there have been incidents of dangerous riding that posed a risk to the safety of the riders and other road users.

Large groups of bikers are expected to travel through Essex on their way to the meet.

Chief Inspector Nick Lee said: “This event has not been authorised and there is no guarantee that adequate safety arrangements are in place, so anyone taking part does so at their own risk.

“If you do decide to attend, please be mindful of your safety and that of members of the public who are not taking part.
