Cllr Jane Walker Welcomes Clapham Biker Arrests

Over the summer Clapham has been suffering an invasion from ‘The Stunt Squad’.  These is a group of motorcyclists and quad-bikers who like to practice terrifying stunts on public roads, often without helmets and always without any care for other road users.
