A funeral procession led to multiple reports of anti-social behaviour after a group of drivers in sports cars hired for the funeral blocked roads and drove recklessly.

The procession was travelling from Bolsover to Shiregreen Cemetery in Sheffield between 10am and 1pm on the 28th April.

Drivers were hanging out of their windows, driving over roundabouts, along pavements and charging into oncoming traffic according to reports.

Sergeant Matt Duffy said the funeral was dedicated to two young people who lost their lives in an accident and this dangerous behaviour posed a risk to everyone involved.

He said: “The manner of driving demonstrated by a handful of those attending meant that they not only posed a risk to themselves, but to other members of the procession and members of the public en route. Our call handlers received a number of calls from people reporting instances of dangerous driving and concerns for the welfare of other road users.”

If you have any information contact the police through 101 quoting the incident number 100 of 28 April.

Any dashcam footage can be sent to enquiries@southyorks.pnn.police.uk.
