An off-road mini motorcycle has been recovered by police after residents complained of it causing a nuisance in the area.

The bike had been brought to the attention of officers in the East Northants Police Team and their efforts to find it have been successful.

A tweet from the team said: "An off road mini motorcycle was found after reports of the below image causing nuisance to local residents.

"After successful inquiries and area search, the bike was located and recovered."

A spokesman for Northants Police said the bike was found last Wednesday evening in the area of East Road and the Oundle Industrial Estate off the A605.

The bike has been seized and a subsequent tweet from the team says if it isn't claimed, the bike will be crushed.
