 Residents in Edinburgh are demanding urgent action to stop joyriding motorbike thieves after a ten-year-old boy suffered “horrific” injuries when he was knocked down on a pedestrian crossing. The crossing, near Drylaw police station on Ferry Road, was showing the green man when he crossed and was hit by a motorcycle at 6:35pm on Saturday. He was taken to the Sick Kids Hospital with 
serious injuries. Calum Steele, general secretary of the Scottish Police Federation union, posted a message which read: “One of the most under pressure areas for policing, Drylaw, where motorcycles run amok almost daily is picking up pieces this evening.”
