Mountain bikers are being warned to not use the new Olympic course at Hadleigh Farm Country Park amid worries over safety.

The track is cordoned off from the public, with safety signs warning people of the potential dangers of riding it. Also, wooden barriers have been implemented to further boost security, reports the Enquirer.

Chris Bramhill, from the police cycle team, told the news provider "We don't want anyone getting injured in the run up to the Olympics and we will be patrolling the area at regular intervals."

The five-kilometre looped course also features steep declines and rock jumps, with Team Great Britain rider Liam Killeen describing it as "very physically demanding".

In a recent article in the Daily Mail, Litherland High School head Jim Donnelly emphasised the importance of safety signage.

He told the newspaper that he ensures signs are used due to fears over being sued.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800554267-ADNFCR
