He added: “The BPS wishes to make it absolutely clear, anyone found to be engaging in this event will be arrested, prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and their vehicle seized.”

The spokesman told the public: “We urge that you let common sense be your guide.”

The event organisers invited motorcyclists to break curfew between midnight and 1am.
