It gets plenty of comments on Trip Advisor – mostly negative – but one youngster’s trip to Wisbech Park on Monday got more than a bad review.

His mistake was to think write-ups on Trip Advisor meant he could take his motorbike for a spin in the park. Wrong.

A police officer was on duty nearby and went after the motorcyclist to caution him about his behaviour.

On Facebook police report that an officer “managed to stop the motorbike on Park Road” not giving away any clue as to where he stayed in hiding to catch him or give chase.

For the miscreant happily enjoying his ride in the park the aftermath is less promising.
