POLICE have seized a motorbike near a small town after numerous complaints from residents.

Local officers stopped a man riding an off road motorcycle on Skipton Road, Earby, last week after receiving a high volume of complaints of anti social use of a motorcycle over the past few weeks.

The vehicle was seized and will be destroyed, a police spokesman said.

A spokesman from West Craven's neighbourhood police team said: "We would like to thank local residents that have contacted the police with information leading to this seizure.

"Police will continue to target any persons who ride or drive illegally on a public road causing danger to other persons or anti social behaviour."
