“A number of Elgin residents have been in touch with me in recent weeks to highlight their concerns over anti-social driving and the impact the behaviour of those involved is having on the local community.

“I spoke directly with Police Scotland’s Chief Inspector here in Moray and I am grateful to local officers for the attention they are giving this issue. I welcome the fact that community officers and now working with the roads policing team to tackle these issues and I would encourage anyone with any relevant information to contact the police on 101.
