Scrambler bike crackdown: 17 arrests and 17 bikes now seized since 'Mad Max' chaos
Seventeen people have now been arrested - and 17 scrambler bikes seized - by police in a high profile response to scrambler bike gangs causing misery in the city.
The rise in arrests and seizures comes as Merseyside Police teams continue to raid homes - with properties in Kensington and Walton among those targeted in the past week.
The action was sparked by a defiant joyride through Liverpool that saw as many as 60 off-road vehicles driven through the city in early October.
