Angry parents have had enough of moped gangs causing havoc on what were once quiet residential streets and the Recorder is backing their calls for action.

Mugging children, stealing motorbikes and intimidating drivers are just some of the offences they have been committing since the beginning of the year.

Readers have been sharing their stories and we have had a massive response.

In one incident, a woman was hit by a scooter during an attempted robbery and the two suspects failed to stop at the scene.

During another, four children were robbed outside KFC in Cherry Tree Lane, Rainham, by around 10 people on mopeds, threatening them with knives.

The Recorder has put together this moped crime hotspot map for readers.
