Motorcyclist and moped riders are being urged to stay safe in this heatwave by wearing appropriate clothing.
PC Nigel Keates, of Lancashire Police, said: "We all like to keep cool in this weather. Please, if you are riding out wear appropriate clothing.
"Bikers wear leathers for a reason.. If you've never had gravel rash or had your skin taken to the bone by tarmac then riding in a t-shirt and shorts is a sure fire way to experience it. Please Google 'gravel rash' ....it's not a pretty sight and is agonisingly painful.
"You may not be riding like a buffoon, but the person that knocks you off your bike might be. Protect yourself."
