Off-road bike seized

Police seized an off-road motorbike at the weekend in
On Saturday morning, officers were called to the
village after reports that two off-road motorbikes were
being driven in an anti social manner.
Police community support officers located two teenage boys at
the village hall, and both were interviewed at the scene.
One off-road bike was seized from an 18-year-old, who was also
reported for traffic offences including driving driving
without insurance, riding without a helmet and not holding a valid
MOT certificate. A second boy, aged 14, was given a
warning and was also reported for traffic offences.
PC Jo Hazelwood from Kent Police said: “Aside from the danger
that the boys were putting themselves in by not wearing the
appropriate safety equipment, they were also causing huge annoyance
within the village.
"Although they weren’t aware of the nuisance they were causing,
a total of six different residents called police to report the same
incident, and I’m pleased that we were able to locate those
involved and seize a bike. Anti-social behaviour can have a
significant impact on local residents, and we would encourage them
to keep reporting any instances so we can take action.”
