In Wigan, police found five off-road bikes that were being driven illegally. Officers have sized the biles after the report of off-road motorbikes being used in an anti-social manner.
After the report of the bikes, officers from GMP’ Safer Roads Targeting Team were called to the scene that was on Withington Lane in Aspull yesterday. Officers have seized five-off road bikes and a Ford Transit van under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act 2002.No arrest has been made.
Sergeant Brian McGill of GMP’s Safer Roads Targeting Team said: “We know that off-road bikes being driven illegally and in an anti-social manner is a real cause of concern and annoyance in our communities.”
“We work alongside local authorities and residents to tackle the problem and measures include gating off areas that are used, putting up warning signs or, if the problem is persistent, ultimately seizing a bike that is used illegally and taking it off the streets for good.”
