Leicester illegal cyclists warned of fines

Cyclists are being warned they will be fined if they are caught riding in part of Leicester city centre.

The New Walk area has been pedestrian-only for several years but has seen consistent complaints about cyclists posing a danger.

Warning signs and leaflet campaigns have so far failed to solve the problem.

Now officers are to hand out £30 on-the-spot fines to those found ignoring the restrictions.
