Reading cyclists fined £30 for riding with no lights

Cyclists caught riding without lights in the dark have been fined as part of a police clampdown.

Thirty people were stopped outside Reading Station as part of a new safer riding initiative, which has been rolled out across the Thames Valley.

Those caught between 1800 and 2100 GMT on Tuesday were given £30 fixed penalty notices for travelling without lights.

If riders show police a receipt showing a set of lights has been bought within seven days, the fine will be cancelled.
