Members of the Kettering Proactive Police team are out in their own off-road vehicles on woodland along the A6116 this afternoon to intervene in issues that local land-owners and woodland users have been experiencing with nuisance bikers.

Riders have been using the woods around Brigstock, Stanion and Weldon to ride illegally.

Offciers have already issued six S59 notices that give them powers to seize vehicles driven in an anti-social way. One bike was confiscated and the rider has been reported - suspected of having no licence, insurance, MOT or tax.
