A campaign is taking place in Long Eaton this month after an increase in reports of cyclists riding without lights. Police will be on the lookout for those riding without proper equipment and will offer advice. Parents of children found on bikes without lights and high-visibility clothing will be sent letters. Local bike shops will be offering a discount on basic lighting sets. PC James Crookall, said: "Youngsters are out and about on their bikes not using any form of lights.”
