POLICE officers are warning motorcyclists in Thetford to act responsibly or face having their bikes seized.

This follows a number of residents in the Croxton Road area raising concerns about motorbikes, mini-motos and mopeds being used in an anti-social way.

Thetford Safer Neighbourhood Team is now conducting regular patrols in the area and will be issuing warning notices to people riding their bikes in an anti-social manner.

If a second warning is issued to a person within 12 months then their vehicle will be seized.

PCSO James Barrett said: “Motorcyclists are being advised to ride responsibly, as anti-social driving causes a great deal of annoyance to residents and it's also extremely dangerous.”
