ONE vehicle has been seized and seven drivers issued with police warnings in a crack-down on nuisance vehicles in Walsoken.

Terrington Safer Neighbourhood Team took action after local residents complained of being disturbed by mini motos and quad bikes being used illegally in Burrett Road and the orchards.

Increased police patrols and enforcement action has seen a notable reduction in incidents and complaints.

At a meeting between the team and residents across the Terrington neighbourhood, it was agreed the issue could be dropped as a local policing priority. The following three community issues were adopted as priorities for the team over the next two months:

Vehicles congregating and alcohol misuse in Churchgate Way, Benns Lane and the playing field, Terrington St Clement.

Anti-social behaviour and youths congregating late at night in Park Crescent, Magdalen.

Anti-social behaviour and vehicles congregating at the community centre in Walpole St Andrew.

At the public priority-setting meeting held in Walpole Cross Keys earlier this month, Terrington Sgt Sam Pontin gave an update on the work carried out by police to deal with the team's other priority issues.

To deal with anti-social behaviour in Terrington St Clement, the team increased foot and mobile patrols at peak times and has been working closely with the parish council to resolve some on-going issues. The team will continue to maintain a presence to disrupt anti-social behaviour and deal with offenders.
