Off-road motorcycles crushed by police

Police in east Northamptonshire have seized and crushed two off-road motorcycles which were causing a nuisance on the Greenway, between Irthlingborough and Higham Ferrers.

It followed reports that some bikes were potentially causing damage to construction works in the area.

The bikes were seized under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act 2002 and then crushed as they were being ridden without insurance.
