TWO motorbikes have been seized by police in Marshland as they continue to clampdown on nuisance motorcylists.

A 14-year-old boy has been given a night-time curfew and ordered to attend a Youth Offender’s rehabilitation programme after admitting a number of driving offences, including taking a motor vehicle without consent and failing to stop for police.

It followed his arrest at Middle Level, Tilney St Lawrence, on October 14.

Two off-road bikers were also stopped by PCSOs in Magdalen on October 17 after residents reported a pair riding along the river banks and Stow Road.

One youth was subsequently stopped in Church Close and had his bike seized and dealt with for a number of motoring offences.

Terrington PCSO, Bernie Lee, said: “This is a rural area and off-road biking is a popular pursuit but it must be done within the law, with express permission from the land owner and in a way that doesn’t disturb local residents.”

“People affected by noisy vehicles or those being driven in an anti-social manner, bikes or cars, should report this to police giving as much detail as possible about those responsible, the vehicle, the times and the locations.

“All of this helps us deal effectively with the problem.”

To report anti-social behaviour to police or to speak to a member of Terrington Safer Neighbourhood Team call 0845 456 4567.
