OFF-ROAD CLAMPDOWN: Cleveland Police have been targeting illegal motorcycle riders in east Middlesbrough

First published in News

A CRACKDOWN on illegal and nuisance bikes has resulted in ten vehicles being seized by police.

Officers carried out three operations over a seven day period in the east Middlesbrough area when six motorcycles, three quad bikes and one car were seized, mostly for being driven without insurance and without a driving licence. Four people were summoned to court for driving without insurance and a licence and one person was arrested on suspicion of theft of motor vehicles and is currently on bail pending further enquiries.

The operations, which took place between Tuesday, July 15 and Tuesday 22, also involved a number of partner agencies.

PC Steve Rollinson, who led the operations, said: “Road safety and the protection of the community are a high priority for local neighbourhood teams. Those that behave anti-socially with their vehicles or those that ride illegal bikes can expect to be put before the courts or have their vehicles taken away.”

Anyone who may have information about driving illegally or carelessly in their local area are urged to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555-111.
