“The warning will stay with this particular teenager and his bike for one year. If he breaches the warning it will result in his bike being seized.
“A Section 59 will be issued to anyone causing alarm, distress or annoyance to the public on or off the road with their vehicle, this can and will lead to the vehicle being seized if the behaviour continues.
“We will target anyone causing nuisance behaviour which affects the quality of life for people in this neighbourhood.”
PC Fearn urged members of the public to help reduce this anti-social behaviour by contacting the team with any information on 101 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
